Reading Pair Could Be Sold

Reading Pair Could Be Sold

Nicky Shorey has been a target of West Ham for some time now, while Leroy Lita has found it hard to even get onto the Reading bench recently. Neither has agreed new contracts that had been offered so they have been told that if they want to go they will be sold.

Although Coppell does want to keep the English duo he is not prepared to have footballers at Reading who are not prepared to give their all for the course, and for the club so he would rather they left than just stayed until something else, or something better even came along.

As Coppell told the Reading Chronicle he only wants players to stay if they are committed to the club, these same thoughts apply to all of the squad: "The one thing I will say, and that goes for everyone here, is that I only want players who want to play for the club

"If they don't, and for whatever reason that might be, it's best for all concerned if they move on.

"Supporters only want players who want to be here giving their all. That rule undoubtedly applies to the whole squad including Leroy and Nicky. That doesn't change for different individuals.

"In my opinion, that has always been the best way of doing things. If someone doesn't want to be here and they are not happy with the way things are going then it's in their best interests, and ours, that they move somewhere else."

England international Shorey has been a long-term target of West Ham, but Newcastle and even Manchester United according to more recent reports could be interested. Middlesbrough and Portsmouth are both reportedly interested in Lita.
