Jobi McAnuff: Reading stalwart attracting interest from a number of clubs

McAnuff's current deal at the Madejski Stadium expires at the end of the season and as yet there have been no talks over an extension.

The news has alerted a host of sides to McAnuff's possible availability during the January transfer window if Reading decide to cash-in on him rather than see him leave for free in the summer.

Charlton, Millwall, Blackburn and Wigan are all thought to be keeping tabs on McAnuff and are weighing up moves for the former Cardiff man.

McAnuff has been at Reading since joining them in 2009 from Watford and has made over 165 appearances for the Royals, helping them win promotion to the Premier League in the 2011/12 season.

McAnuff has admitted he is yet to hear from Reading about his future and that he is keeping his options open.

"At this stage of the season I have to look at what's best for me moving forward," the 32-year-old told the Reading Evening Post.

"If it was up to me I would remain here. I'm settled here, I'm enjoying my time at the club.

"But that's not all it comes down to, there has to be a willingness on the other side to make that happen."

He added: "I had a chat last season with the manager and I made it clear I was happy at the club.

"It's a situation that is now out of my hands.

"It's not really up to me to initiate, I've made my feelings clear."

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
