Coppell Asses What Reading Need

In order to turn Reading's fortunes around this season Steve Coppell believes that he needs to make three "substantial" transfer signings in January.

Coppell, who's own future is still unclear after his recent comments, believes that Reading do have the ambition that it takes for players to want to sign for them, but concedes in order to continue moving forward three substantial transfer signings are needed to be made each year, and these are his aims in January: "Players want to come to clubs with ambition, and we like to think we've got ambition.

"If you look at the summer, Man Utd and Liverpool spent 40million, 50million each, we spent hardly anything. So by definition we're losing ground.

"So, for this club to be ambitious we've got to be acquiring three substantial signings every year and be honest, it's a minimum of three.

"They've got to see the ambition; it's got to be tangible in the form of expensive signings, a bigger stadium.

"Everything about the club has got to meet the demands of the modern Premier League player."

Reading chairman John Madejski has already told Coppell that funds will be made available in the New Year, and this will not be dependant on players being sold, however Nicky Shorey and Leroy Lita might be sold, if they want to leave, so this could add extra funds to his kitty.
