Reading could find out within the next couple of days, whether Gary Hooper is wiling to join the Championship club.

The Celtic frontman has been linked with a summer move away from Scotland, with several suitors in the Premier League and interest from his former boss, Nigel Adkins. Hull have already reportedly had a £4 million bid turned down for Hooper, but could be wiling to sell further into the summer, with only one-year left on his current deal.

Quoted by the Reading Chronicle, one of Hooper’s representatives said: ‘Gary is still on holiday at the moment and I won’t know more until he comes back. As far as I know, Reading haven’t made an official bid for him but I believe he has talked to them. Nothing is concrete at the moment so we will have to wait and see.’

I would still be surprised if Hooper came to the Championship – not because of Champions League football, more the fact that a Premier League side would be happy to pay his asking price, presuming it is around the £5 million mark. It would be one hell of a coup if we could pull it off though,
