Reading are in desperate need of a reform after a shocking season in the Championship last year, where they struggled for the majority of the campaign after nearly reaching the play-offs the season before.

Steve Clarke was bought in to replace Nigel Adkins in December last year , but despite a lengthy cup run, he couldn’t turn their league fortunes around.

He told the club’s official website: “It would give the place a lift to get one or two signings through the door. There hasn’t been much talk in the press and we did that purposely, I’m not one to comment on rumours, but I can assure the supporters that we are working really hard to try and get some more players in the building.

“If we could get two or three in before we head off to Thailand then it would be brilliant for everyone at the club.

“Some are closer than others and some that have fallen away might come back up again; you never know. It’s such a long period of time and the transfer window hasn’t officially opened yet but we are working hard.

“We know that we need to add to the squad. When I go into my office at the moment, the squad is threadbare and we know that we need to get some business done in the next few weeks.”

The Royals are in desperate need of a goalkeeper this summer after losing Adam Federici to Premier League Southampton.

Clarke is also looking for a new central defender as Alex Pearce snubbed a new deal at the Madejski Stadium to join Championship rivals Derby County.
