Nigel Adkins: Remains focused on Reading

Adkins' odds have recently been slashed to become the new man at the helm at the Barclays Premier League club, who parted company with Steve Clarke in December.

But the 48-year-old insists he is totally focused on getting Reading's faltering Sky Bet Championship promotion challenge back on track.

He told BBC Radio Berkshire: "A chancer puts on £25 and the bookie takes the odds all the way down.

"All my focus and energies are on trying to do what's right at Reading Football Club.

"There's a lot going on behind the scenes to get the future right, and obviously we're in the transfer window now, indicating there's a lot going on because we've got to get our league campaign back on track."

The Royals have won only one of their last six league games and slipped to ninth in the Championship table.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
