Coppell looking for strikers

Published Add your comment

Reading manager Steve Coppell has admitted he is keen to bring more firepower to the Madejski Stadium when the transfer window reopens this week.

Coppell has Leroy Lita back from his loan spell at Norwich but is looking to make more signings to strengthen his squad for the promotion run-in.

He said: "Overall I would like to enhance the squad and I think we need a couple of things."

"After January you're left vulnerable to any injuries and suspensions and it's my job to evaluate where the potential holes are in the squad and then do something about it," he added.

"We're strong in midfield with plenty of options but there are question marks up front.

"But the whole transfer situation and loan system is a farce. Championship clubs are playing into the hands of Premier League teams by inflating the value of their secondary players."
