Defensive reinforcements come along like buses, it would seem! After the signing earlier today of Liam Moore from Leicester City, news came out after the match against Brighton that Tyler Blackett could very well be joining him. This follows reports from yesterday that Reading were close to a deal for the Manchester United youngster.
You'd imagine that the move can't be too far off, considering that Blackett was spotted in a West Stand box by, amongst others, this eagled-eyed fan.

According to Get Reading, the Royals have been relatively keen on signing Tyler Blackett for a while now, but have only recently stepped up their interest. Despite playing at centre half a lot, Jaap Stam predominantly sees Blackett as a left back.
However, the move isn't guaranteed to go through.
Stam on Blackett: "We've shown our interest but I don't know if we can succeed in bringing him in to the club." #ReadingFC— Tom Crocker (@TomJCrocker) August 20, 2016
