Brian McDermott has played down reports he is to be replaced as Reading boss by Dick Advocaat.

The Royals lie 18th in the Barclays Premier League and have not yet won a game this season. Reports in the Dutch press over the last week have linked PSV Eindhoven coach Advocaat to McDermott's job, with Russian owner Anton Zingarevich reportedly interested in talking to the former Holland boss.

When asked if he was aware of the rumours, McDermott said: "(He is a) decent manager - I haven't actually (read anything). It is pretty sad to have conversations like this really I think - you have a bunch of people here absolutely trying their best to the nth degree at the club."
