Church out? Ayew in?
Sport24 has reported that the Marseille president Vincent Labrune has told media sources in France that Ayew is 'close to committing' a move to the Royals. Royals boss Brian McDermott did dismiss any rumours circulating concerned with the young striker, saying it was pure speculation, but Reading fans have heard this phrase before!
Church, a Welsh international, will be on his way out of the Royals to let this move to go through. Many Championship sides are interested in the services of the 23-year old, which include Cardiff, Leicester, Huddersfield and Watford. However, Ipswich Town are current favourites to sign the Reading academy-graduate, who is yet to make a Premier League appearance.
