Michael Hector: Enjoyed his time at Pittodrie

The 21-year-old has seen an initial six-month spell in Scotland come to a close.

He has been forced to return to his parent club at the Madejski Stadium as a result, but is waiting to see what the Royals have planned for him.

Hector's contract is due to expire at the end of the season, so he is keen to put himself in the shop window or complete a permanent switch.

Another stint at Aberdeen would help to keep him in the spotlight, and the versatile defender admits he would jump at the chance to re-join a side pushing hard for cup glory in 2014.

Hector said in the Daily Record: "It could be a very good season for Aberdeen. We are still in both cups and second in the league.

"We can keep that going and maybe win trophies.

"I don't want to miss out on playing in a League Cup semi-final. I will be disappointed if I am not part of it, but it is not down to me. Nigel Adkins is a strict guy so I will have to ask him nicely.

"My team-mates, the fans and the staff at Aberdeen have been amazing to me. It's crazy. Even the staff at Aberdeen airport were wishing me all the best and to have a safe trip."

Dons boss Derek McInnes is another hoping Hector will be heading north again in the near future, but appreciates that he may have to be patient in his pursuit.

He said: "We will keep in touch with Reading and there are still three-and-a-half weeks until the window closes."

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
