Reading eye Man United defender after Moore arrival

Tyler Blackett: Signed for Reading

Reading have completed the signing of centre-back Liam Moore from Leicester and are keen to add Man United’s Tyler Blackett to the squad.

Moore has signed a four-year deal with the Royals, bringing an end to his Foxes career which included loan spells with Bradford, Brentford and Bristol City.

The 23-year-old has been top of Jaap Stam’s wishlist for the majority of the summer, and is now hoping to turn to his former club Man United to bring in Blackett to bolster the defence even further.

Blackett became a first-team regular under Louis van Gaal, but is unlikely to get a look-in under Jose Mourinho. He spent part of the season on loan at Celtic last season, yet he could leave Old Trafford on a permanent deal according to The Sun.
