Hull City are set to beat Scottish Champions Celtic in the race to sign Reading’s highly-rated right back Chris Gunter, according to the Sun.
Gunter has been subject to considerable interest from several Premier League clubs after having an outstanding tournament at Euro 2016, where his performances helped Wales reach the semi finals where they lost to eventual winners Portugal.
Gunter has a £1.1 million release clause written into his contract at Reading, which was renewed towards the back end of the 2015/16 season, and Hull City have reportedly won the race for the Welshman’s signature.
The former Nottingham Forest man’s performances have been somewhat inconsistent at Reading for the past couple of seasons, with question marks over his final cross and delivery into the opposition box.
Reading fans however cannot deny his commitment to the club, with Gunter having spent 4 years at the club now since arriving from Forest in 2012, and has made nearly 150 league appearances.
Reading fans…. Will you be gutted to lose Chris Gunter? Or not bothered? Let us know below!
