Whatever is simmering away amongst the surface, no official move Lambert has yet been made. A source close to Reading stated: "There have been no conversations" about the hitman, who only recently signed a new 3 year contract with Southampton. It seems the Saints will only consider an offer for Lambert, who scored 15 goals in his first Premier League season last year, if they can land a high-profile striker during the transfer window. This one looks set to drag on.
A late goal from Bristol City forward Albert Adomah snatched a win for Bristol City at Ashton gate on Wednesday evening. Royston Drenthe was again impressive and created a number of chances in the first half. However, we squandered numerous goal-scoring opportunities in the throughout the game leaving City to, perhaps fortunately, run out winners.
