The Royals have released  three goalkeepers in youngsters Dan Lincoln, Aleks Gogic and John Henley, as well as Australia international Adam Federici, who joined Bournemouth following his contract expiration this summer.

That then leaves the confusing situation of Mikkel Andersen, who on the Royals’ retained list as he was not offered a new contract, but was also not released.

It leaves them with one goalkeeper, Stuart Moore, who was on loan at Basingstoke last season and won player of the year award during his time there.

Steve Clarke says he recognises Moore’s achievements, but still wants at least one goalkeeper this summer, telling Get Reading: “We’ve got young Stuart who is a big prospect.

“We want to try and push Stuart a little bit this year.

“So we do have a young goalkeeper in place. But obviously we need to bring in at least one experienced goalkeeper and I’ve got my eye on more than one.”

Clarke has been linked with a barrage of stoppers, such as former Swindon man Wes Foderingham, Millwall keeper David Forde, former Wigan man Ali Al Habsi and former Liverpool keeper Brad Jones.
