The 23-year-old Zambian, who has also attracted interest from Arsenal, is flying to England to undergo a medical with the Royals on Monday or Tuesday.

Sunzu's contract at Mazembe runs until 2015 but Reading have persuaded the DR Congo side to sell, with only formalities remaining before the transfer is completed.

Mazembe president Moses Katumbi said: "Indeed, Sunzu is heading to Reading for tests after the agreement by TP Mazembe and the Zambia Federation.

"He just sent us a message in which he thanked the club."

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.
