Wayne Bridge: Former Manchester City defender set for Reading switch

Bridge, who spent last season on loan at Brighton, is available on a free transfer after seeing out his contract at the Etihad Stadium.

A number of clubs, including Queens Park Rangers, expressed an interest in signing the former England international, but it appears Reading have won the race for his signature.

Royals boss Nigel Adkins is keen to bolster his full-back options having allowed Ian Harte and Nicky Shorey to leave the Madejski Stadium.

Bridge is thought to have agreed a one-year deal at Reading to become the club's first signing of the summer as they look to make an immediate return to the Premier League.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
