Brian McDermott: Missed out on a fifth signing

The Royals had been linked with a move for Blackpool's Tom Ince and they had made a bid for the England Under-21 international earlier this week.

Brian McDermott has been busy in this month's transfer window bringing in Stephen Kelly, Hope Akpan, Nick Blackman and Daniel Carrico, but Director of Football Nick Hammond has revealed they have just missed on a fifth new face which would have been a club record signing.

"We have been working throughout the day on one last record deal to bring a player to the club but it hasn't come to fruition," Hammond told the club's official website.

"We've made four very good signings in this window and you can see that the players we've brought in have already made an impact."

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
