Samuel was prolific for the Royals' Under-18s last season and, having been awarded a professional deal in the summer, has continued where he left off for their Under-21s this term.

As a result, the England U19 international was drafted into Reading's first-team matchday squad and duly made his Premier League debut as a second-half substitute in the 3-0 defeat at Sunderland in mid-December.

Meanwhile, left-back Dan Potts has seen his loan spell with the U's cut short after he was recalled by parent club West Ham.

Potts was due to remain at the Weston Homes Community Stadium until January 27.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
