Hooper yet to make decision on future

Hooper yet to make decision on future

Reading could find out within the next couple of days, whether Gary Hooper is wiling to join the Championship club.

The Celtic frontman has been linked with a summer move away from Scotland, with several suitors in the Premier League and interest from his former boss, Nigel Adkins. Hull have already reportedly had a £4 million bid turned down for Hooper, but could be wiling to sell further into the summer, with only one-year left on his current deal.

Quoted by the Reading Chronicle, one of Hooper's representatives said: 'Gary is still on holiday at the moment and I won't know more until he comes back. As far as I know, Reading haven't made an official bid for him but I believe he has talked to them. Nothing is concrete at the moment so we will have to wait and see.'

I would still be surprised if Hooper came to the Championship - not because of Champions League football, more the fact that a Premier League side would be happy to pay his asking price, presuming it is around the £5 million mark. It would be one hell of a coup if we could pull it off though,
