Striker linked with loan exit
Reading striker Simon Church is in demand with a host of Championship clubs interested in taking him on loan.
The Wales forward is likely to struggle for a regular first-team place this season following the arrival of Pavel Porgrebnyak and a move back to the Championship could be on the cards. Church bagged seven goals last season as the Royals won promotion and has vowed to fight for his place in the side as Brian McDermott's men prepare for life back in the top flight. However if it soon becomes clear he will struggle for action then a loan move could appeal and Ipswich Town, Nottingham Forest and Huddersfield Town have enquired about his availability. Leicester and Bolton have also been linked in the past so the striker will not be short of offers should he decide to move on in search of more football.
