Reading forward George Puscas has reportedly turned down a loan offer from Turkish side Kasimpasa, according to Berkshire Live.
The Romanian international has found regular game time hard to come by in recent seasons, having arrived in 2019 from Italian giants Inter Milan.
Puscas was restricted to just 22 appearances in all competitions last term, and was often behind Lucas Joao in Veljko Paunovic’s pecking order with the Berkshire-based side, as they narrowly missed out on a top-six finish in the Championship.
The 25-year-old has shown glimpses of his quality whilst with the Royals, but injuries have prevented him from being involved in the starting XI on a regular basis.
Reading’s financial pressure has been well-documented, with Paunovic recently revealing that some first-team players could still depart the club this summer, as they look to ease their FFP restrictions.

Reading obviously looking to loan him out, with Joao & Swift being injury prone we will be lucky to put a side out !!! Urzzzzzzzz

Madness if we loan him out

That’s a shame he’s probably on high wages, could do with getting him off the wage bill. https://t.co/ZdZA7iyPwz
