Reading’s Danny Loader is on the verge of joining Portuguese side Porto, reports Mail Online.
The 19-year-old left the club this month. After breaking into the first-team last year it was expected this time round, that Loader would become one of Reading’s star players.
But that’s not quite been the case – Loader has managed just seven league appearances all season, all without scoring, and he leaves without featuring for the Royals since January.
Can you name the mascot of these 40 EFL clubs? Have a go now!
Reading fans however, aren’t buying into the move. The story from Mail Online claims Loader will sign a three-year deal worth £1 million each season, though it’s received criticism from some fans.

Are we going to have any players left ?

Good Move for him. Portuguese clubs really develop players. I see him as a second striker as he dropped off the front when playing for us.

He'll make some money good luck to him but just like Jem Karacan I'm guessing very little game time followed by being released in 3 years and moving to Notts County on a free.
