Reading face a battle with Championship rivals QPR and Millwall in their quest to sign Scunthorpe United winger Josh Morris, who is a free-agent this summer, as reported by HITC.
Morris, 27, has scored five goals and made six assists in 19 appearances this season, but with the Iron heading to League Two after relegation this season, a move away from Glanford Park looks very much on the cards.
So would Morris get into Reading’s current starting XI?
“He might, but I’d be concerned if I was Morris.
“I can see Reading having a strong summer and although he might play now, I’m not sure that will be the case come August.
“He’d be better served at a side likely to be in the bottom six of the Championship and I don’t think that’ll be Readng.”
“I’m not sure.
“Morris is a good player and has done very well for Scunthorpe over the past few seasons. He’s scored plenty of goals in League One and deserves a chance to prove himself in the Championship.
“He would be a good signing for the Royals, although I’m not sure he’d be good enough to get into their starting XI straight away, he might have to put in a few good performances first.”
“I think he’d start for the Royals.
“Reading have lost the likes of Lewis Baker and Ovie Ejaria due to them returning to their parent clubs.
“There’s no doubt that it would be a risk in signing Morris as he hasn’t got that much experience in the Championship, but I think he could establish himself alongside Andy Rinomhota in the centre of midfield.”
