Forgotten Reading FC striker linked with summer move after impressive loan spell

Published

Reading FC are set for a summer clear out in the summer, with Jose Gomes seemingly looking to trim the wage bill ahead of the 2019/2020 season. 

One man that could be heading for the exit door is Marc McNulty, who is currently on loan with Scottish side, Hibernian and is enjoying life up in Scotland.

McNulty has six goals to his name so far for Hibs, since arriving at the club on loan until the end of this year’s league campaign.

It remains to be seen as to how much of a future the striker has at Reading, although it seems likely that he could be departing the club over the summer.

In an interview with BBC Sport Scotland, Hibs’ Chief Executive Leann Dempster revealed that the club are trying to make McNulty’s loan move a permanent one in the near future.

“I honestly don’t know – it’s possible.

“I think Graham (Mathie), our head of recruitment, is trying to get himself to the front of the queue again.”

Dempster also revealed that McNulty is seemingly enjoying life with Hibernian, and they’ll be keen to sign him on a permanent basis.

“Marc is obviously from Edinburgh. He has the chance to be back up here with his family so you would assume he is enjoying life.

“And I see them around the training centre. I see them on the field and it’s a place full of happy faces.”

McNulty has struggled for game time with Reading, with the Scottish forward only making just four starts this season, and with Reading likely to rebuild ahead of next season, he could be departing the club in the near future.

The Verdict: 

I wouldn’t be surprised to see him leave Reading.

McNulty evidently isn’t rated by the Berkshire-based side, and a permanent move to Hibernian would be the best move for both parties involved.

He hasn’t got a future with Reading, but could reignite his career with a permanent move to the Scottish side.
