Brian McDermott insists Reading's recruitment drive is far from over despite the arrival of three new faces at the Madejski Stadium this month.

McDermott moved quickly to boost his ranks when the window opened at the start of the month, landing Hope Akpan from Crawley and Daniel Carrico from Sporting Lisbon. The Royals boss then further shored up his leaky defence with the capture of right-back Stephen Kelly, who signed a two-and-a-half year deal with the club on Monday.

Yet with his team still three points from safety, McDermott admits he is still searching for yet more players before the window shuts, and said: "We have signed three, but we are still in the process of looking."
