What a week it's been. Royston Drenthe is being thrown about all over the place at the moment, with Reading FC making it clear he's not wanted at the Madejski Stadium any more.

Drenthe's proposed move to a club in China was confirmed as being off by Steve Clarke after our loss to Fulham, but in the past day reports have been circulating in the Turkish press that he could yet move on this month.

A report from suggests he's on the verge of signing for Kayseri Erciyesspor on a two-and-a-half year contract.

Suat Altın İnşaat Kayseri Erciyesspor, commonly known as Erciyesspor or Kayseri Erciyesspor were founded in 1966 and currently lie in 15th at the Turkish top level, outside of the relegation zone on goal difference.

The latest noises from the Dutchman's camp indicate he's in no rush to return to Berkshire, with his Instagram yesterday showing him sunning himself.
