Le Fondre has started just once since Adkins took over at the club last month and was an unused substitute in last Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Norwich.

The 12-goal striker said after that match he was unsure where his future lies amid speculation linking him with Leeds, where former Reading boss Brian McDermott is now in charge, and newly-promoted Cardiff.

But Adkins says he has spoken with the 26-year-old over his situation and feels he could still have a part to play as relegation-threatened Reading face the prospect of plying their trade in the Championship next season.

The manager told the Daily Star: "I've had a good conversation about the whole situation with Alfie (Le Fondre).

"We like him a lot. I started him against Southampton and he came on against Liverpool.

"Maybe he could have come on against Norwich, but we were in a good position in the game.

"I think it is great that a player wants to play and if they can't start then they want to make an impact off the bench.

"That's great for me and that's what you want - people here fighting for the cause.

''I've got no issues at all with Alfie and he has been very professional in everything he's done."
