For the last month there have been regular newspaper reports linking Reading with 23 year old Frenchmen Anthony Koura. It seemed Jaap Stam's men were in an unlikely transfer battle with Olympique de Marseille, but today it turned out that both clubs have missed out on the highly rated striker.
Koura announced on his twitter account that he has joined Ligue 2 champions AS Nancy-Lorraine. It will be a blow for The Royals particularly as you would not expect a new Ligue 1 side to be able to offer big bucks.
Koura will join the likes of Robert Berić as could have beens!
