'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Royals confirm Rogic deal is close

Reading manager Brian McDermott has said a deal to sign Australia international Tom Rogic is on the cards, but a work permit could prevent his move.

The 20-year old has been linked with a move to the Madejski Stadium for the past couple of weeks, but it appears the move is drawing closer to completion. The fee for Rogic is set to be around 500,000 mark, who is currently playing his football in the Australian A League, for the Central Coast Mariners, who are also top of the league.

Speaking to the Official Reading FC website, Brian said: 'We`ve got to speak to Tom, he`s got to speak to us and we`ll see. If we do agree and he does come we`ve then got to get a work permit, which is not a 'gimme`. We got turned down on appeal last time but if it goes that far again, we have good video coverage to give to the panel.'

A few videos have appeared on YouTube that showcases the talents that Tom posses' and although it being a few minutes of highlights, its clear that the lad has talent. He stands at 6'2, making him a presence in an aerial sense and it appears he has a great range of passing and good technique to go with it.
