Reading are close to signing Australia international Tom Rogic.

Playmaker Rogic, 20, who came close to joining Reading in 2011 when the Berkshire club failed to secure a work permit for him, has shone for the Central Coast Mariners and is due to reach the end of his contract in May.

Mariners chairman Peter Turnbull told SBS' The World Game: "We have been in discussions with Reading and both clubs are fairly satisfied with what's on the table and now it's up to Tom to reach a personal agreement with Reading."
