Reading's Russian owner has pledged to continue supporting Royals manager Nigel Adkins in the transfer market ahead of the new Championship season.

The Royals have added the high-profile additions of Wayne Bridge and Royston Drenthe to the club ahead of the new season, as well as completing a deal to sign midfielder Danny Williams from Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim.

Reading's presence in the market has not come to an end though, with the club continuing to look for new additions to strengthen the squad before the window closes in September.

Speaking to BBC Berkshire, Anton Zingarevich promised further arrivals at the Madejski Stadium ahead of the new campaign: "It is not the end in terms of signings, we have six weeks to go and we need to do a little bit more business.

"We pretty much have two players for each position so we need to see if any leave. We are happy with the squad but we will see at the end of the week what we need to do to be better," Zingarevich urged. 

"You have to look at it individually. We have a squad of 25 so we need to see if there are any players who would want to leave or any bids for our players."

Zingarevich's Thames Sport Investment group took over the club in May 2012 following the club's Championship winning season. 

Since then however, the new owner moved to sack Brian McDermott and appoint the former Southampton and Scunthorpe United boss Nigel Adkins - who has been with the Berkshire club since March 2013.
