Portsmouth hope to sign Reading´s Nicky Shorey and Tottenham´s Younes Kaboul before Sunday´s FA Community Shield match against Manchester United at Wembley.

Reading manager Steve Coppell expects Shorey to secure a transfer back to the Barclays Premier League in the next few days - even though Shorey has been quoted in the Reading Evening Post saying he is undecided on his future.

Reading turned down a £4million bid from West Ham for Shorey last season and now Coppell has said: "To be fair to Nicky, he has made it clear from this time last year that he would prefer to leave and ply his trade elsewhere."
