‘Links’ with Nicky Shorey have been growing recently, and now Harry Redknapp has admitted a liking for the Reading left back.

It as the usually Redknapp talk, the ‘I like him’ speech, with him saying: ‘Shorey is a player I like. He’s a good player and a good footballer. We’re looking for players who would give us something a bit different, and he would do that.

‘He would give us something different to Hermann. Having said that, Hermann did a fantastic job for us and was brilliant for me.

‘But we are going to need a squad and we are going to need cover. We are going to be playing more games than ever next season and it’s going to be a lot tougher for us.’

I would welcome the signing myself to be honest and Shorey has made it clear that he wants to leave Reading, so with him only having year on his contract he could be signed for around £3m, which I do not think is bad at all.

Could he become the second player to arrive from Reading, would we even want this? Thoughts please guys…
