Despite Reading needing to add firepower to their front line, there’s nothing wrong with strengthening your options at the back and especially with some youth.
Darnell Furlong has recently been linked with a move to Berkshire; Aston Villa and Preston North End have also shown an interest, but I reckon a better destination would be the Madejski Stadium considering their position in the Championship table.
The 21-year-old right-back has spent the last six months on loan at Swindon Town from Queens Park Rangers but received the call to return to Loftus Road by Ian Holloway earlier this month.
Furlong has appeared just once for the London club since his arrival back from League One.
Although he’s highly rated at QPR, game time is something he may struggle with and a move away is very realistic if he starts to become frustrated at the lack of minutes on the pitch.
