Mills to force move out of Reading?

Mills to force move out of Reading?

With Wolves attempts to sign Reading defender Matt Mills in deadlock, the defender could be set to try and force his way out of his current club.

Yesterday the Express & Star reported that 24-year-old Mills who is Reading's captain, is set to meet with Reading manager Brian McDermott today.

The E&S believe Mills is settled at Reading with one year of his £20,000 a week contract remaining, however the lure of the Premier League with not only ourselves but also Blackburn and Stoke is too great for him and he could attempt to 'engineer his move away'.

The Daily Mail have either picked up on that and just recycled the news for this mornings paper, or there have been further developments, because they report that Mills will 'request a move', which to me sounds like possibly handing in a transfer request.

The Mail also report that the deal would be worth £3.8million, however it still isn't clear who Mills favours in regards to Stoke, Blackburn and us.

OK, guys, putting WW loyalty to one side (difficult, I know) which club would you choose, if you were Mills? Personally, I think we have a chance, even though our record against Stoke and Blackburn was not that good last season. We have better facilities and, with the development of the stadium, a clear indication that we mean business in the PL. We also have ex-Reading players in the squad, ones of top PL qualitiy.

I always worry when we are pitted against other teams in negotiations... history has taught us that we are not prepared to spend. Forget the "we wont be fleeced" mantra for a minute and realise that we can forget any aspirations of a 442, as well as seriously jeopardise our chances of survival if we dont get at least 2 quality defenders in the transfer ... Pushing the boat out a little once in a while may very well be necessary. Do you hear that Moxey.

20k a week for his first season as a regular in the championship hahaha yeah right !!! , Im pretty sure we will get 2 centre halves or just 1 and a full back but obviously things aren't moving quickly for 1 reason or another , none of us know the inns n outs of it all , but we have done well in the transfer market and i expect us to do so again , just not as quickly !

Now the E&S reckon it's between us and Leicester! From the likes of Blackburn & Stoke........to Leicester? I get the feeling that we may have been in the driving seat, after all, from the start with this one.Hard to know who's spreading more rumours, the players agents or the selling clubs.

Oh so pernickety oddjob... you know i was referring to being able to play 2 upfront, instead of swelling the midfield for cover.

Still think its going down the risky road of unproven premiership players,lot of money,bit like buying Berra from Hearts!,I'd like to add a couple of more mill on and get the proven thing.

It's a question of weighing up our experience of Berra against Birmingham's experience of Johnson and Dann.

Well, I popped onto Vital Liverpool asking for opinion on Konchesky and got nothing. May aswell drop by the Reading site and see what they have to say as no one knows better than them. I would like to think we have reached a point where most targets would choose us over Blackburn but with their PL status established Stoke unfortunately, especially with the lure of European football are likely to beat us to signings unless perhaps some of our players are on good terms with the player and have a word. The Express & Star switching from Blackburn and Stoke battling for his signature one day, then Leicester the next is just the latest reason not to take much interest in whatever they print and simply play wait and see. The issue continues though- we have a very clear strategy where we will not be pushed around in the market but how much is too much? If we are prepared to pay 3.5 and they will only drop to 3.7 is that too much? Are we really being mugged? Could the player prove the next Dann or Johnson and be worth at least double in a years time? None of us wants to see the club get 'mugged' but the clock is ticking and sooner rather than later players are going to end up elsewhere and we are going to sign a couple of free transfer veterans. I would love to see Bassong arrive. Elsewhere Evans at United would be a great addition.
