Reading Rule Out Lita Gate Return

Reading Rule Out Lita Gate Return

Premiership Reading have ruled out Leroy Lita to Ashton Gate. Lita has fallen out with Royals boss Steve Coppell and is looking for a move.

City have made inquires about the availably of the England under 21 striker, but Reading director of football Nicky Hammond says Lita is going nowhere.

Nicky Hammond said to the Evening Post "I do not expect Leroy Lita to leave during the transfer window and I still want him to commit to Reading.'

He added: 'I'm sure other clubs will look at the Leroy situation and think there is an opportunity there. But the manager has said all along he needs four forwards for healthy competition and there is hardly anyone we want to lose in the transfer window.'

Lita has only appeared eight times for Reading this season. The striker moved from City back in July, 2005 for £1 million.

Would be a coup if he did sign for you guys again. I really liked him last season.

He has stated that he wants to remain in the top flight. So maybe there is an oppotunity in the summer if you guys get promotion!
