@pott95 brings us up to date with all the transfer news in what looks to be a busy week at the Madejski Stadium.

So, last week I concluded my round-up by saying that I hope we have a new signing to talk about and look forward to see playing in the hoops. We still haven't (officially) got a new signing, yet...

Rumoured Arrivals

Orlando Sa

It was this time last month when I reported that the former Fulham striker could be on his way to Reading, but speculation had calmed down since that article. However, Steve Clarke's interest in the striker seems to have been reignited with Reading FC reporter Charles Watts all but confirming the imminent signing of the Legia Warsaw striker. He will arrive for a fee of around £1,000,000, which for Reading is a big fee!  Sa also tweeted an emotional farewell to his Polish fans. The transfer should be officially confirmed within the next few days, depending on the whether the club want to announce more than one signing at a time (optimistic I know).

Boaz Myhill

It was reported on social media and on HITC sport that Reading were closing in on the signing of Welsh international goalkeeper Boaz Myhill, whose contract with Premier League side West Brom is up this summer. It is very clear that Reading are a bit light in the goalkeeper department with Adam Federici and Mikkel Anderson both leaving in the summer. Myhill is definitely a feasible target as he is currently 2nd choice behind Ben Foster and will be wanting 1st team football with him being in the prime age for a goalkeeper at 32. He made 7 appearances for West Brom this year with 3 coming in the FA Cup and the remaining games being played towards the end of the season with Foster being out injured. So we could definitely see this man at the Madejski in the next few weeks with no reported discussions with the player at this present time.

George Puscas

I think I speak for the majority of Reading fans by saying this would be an excellent signing and massive coup for the club if Puscas decided to join. Reading are one of several clubs who have been in contact with Inter Milan over a loan deal for the Romanion Under 21 international. With French side Nantes the front-runners for his signature it looks unlikely that a deal will be struck. But with the club already making moves to try and sign the player on loan, we will have to wait and see what the future holds for the 19 year old who has scored 16 goals for the Inter Milan youth side.

Paul McShane and Steven Quinn

The situation regarding these two players is unchanged with the club still wanting to sign them. But with Cardiff's reported interest in signing Quinn, the battle for his services this season will intensify this week with the player wanting his future resolved as quickly as possible as the season draws ever nearer.

Rumoured Departures

Jem Karacan

The academy graduate is edging ever closer to his dream move to Galatasaray. Reports from Turkey suggest the player's transfer should be completed in the near future.

New Contract

To end the round-up with some good news, young and upcoming winger Tarique Fosu has signed a 2 year deal with the club. We haven't seen as much as we would have liked to of the tricky winger but if he plays like he did against Derby in the final game of the season then we will look forward to seeing the start of a very promising career at Reading. He looked full of confidence when running at defenders and tested the goalkeeper a number of times. So, look out for him this season as I expect to see him and Jack Stacey following in the footsteps of young centre-back Jake Cooper who has impressed when involved with the first team last season.

That concludes my round up for this week; I have attached a poll below on where you expect to see Reading finish this season and look forward to seeing your opinions! I'll be back next week with the latest round up!
