Michael Hector: Shone at Aberdeen, but hopes to remain at Reading

The 21-year-old defender will see his current deal expire at the end of the season.

He has had few opportunities in which to stake a claim for fresh terms at the Madejski Stadium, with 11 loan spells taken in since 2009.

The Royals think highly of the youngster, though, and his representative is in the process of thrashing out an agreement which suits all parties.

Hector told the Reading Post: "They are still in talks. I don't really know where it's at.

"My agent and the club are dealing with that. I'm just concentrating on my football. That's why I've got an agent.

"If I was doing it myself then I probably would be worrying about it, but that's his job and hopefully he sorts it out."

Hector returned to Reading in January from a successful loan spell at Aberdeen.

Dons boss Derek McInnes has admitted that he would be keen on bringing the centre-half back to Pittodrie if there is a deal to be done, but Hector claims his preference is to remain in England.

He said: "My goal is to stay here.

"I feel part of the set-up here. It's a great club and hopefully things can get sorted.

"I just want to be playing games. That's the main thing.

"I feel part of the squad, I feel part of the team. Everyone looks after me at the training ground and also on match days. It's good to be part of it."

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.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

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!
