Wolverhampton Wanderers are ‘firmly expected’ to re-launch a move to sign Reading striker Danny Loader, a source close to Reading has exclusively confirmed to Football League World.
The young forward has been widely talked about after his excellent youth career which has seen him play for every England youth side from the under-16s to the under-20s.
Loader was actually expected to sign for Wolves at the end of the summer transfer window, but the move fell through in the very final hours of deadline day. With the forward already at the Premier League club’s training ground, Reading decided to pull the plug on any potential move.
This has now left the player with a decision to make, especially seeing as his contract is set to run out in the summer. If he’s not going to sign a new deal for the Royals, then it’s likely the club would look to cash on him in the January transfer window.
It has been reported that several Premier League clubs are interested in the 20-year-old, including Manchester United with the youngster set to make a decision on his future over the coming months.
Loader made his debut for the Royals under Jaap Stam when he was just 16-years-old, and scored his first senior goal for Reading at Middlesbrough last season. However, since his failed move in the summer, he’s slowly fell down the pecking order at the club.
It’s set to be a very interesting transfer window to see how this one plays out, and by the end of it, Loader could well be a top-flight striker.
