Royals close in on striker

Watford striker Tommy Smith is understood to be undergoing a medical at Reading on Monday afternoon.

The Royals are in need of firepower after scoring just once in the Championship in four games this season and boss Brendan Rodgers is a confirmed admirer of Hornets hot-shot Smith after managing him last term.

The Vicarage Road outfit claimed Reading had withdrawn from the race to sign Smith, who is also wanted by Sheffield United, last week after failing to match Watford's valuation of £1.8m as they wanted to include substantial add-ons.

However, it appears the Royals have now agreed a fee for Smith, 29, who has been bang in form at the start of the season.
