Reading won´t rule out Lescott move

Reading director of football Nick Hammond has revealed the club have held transfer talks with Wolves and refused to deny that Joleon Lescott was the topic of conversation.

The Premiership-bound Royals last week reportedly had a club record bid of £4.5million rejected for the defender. Reading are yet to strengthen their squad following promotion to the top flight for the first time in their 135-year history, and Hammond remains coy over the possibility of Lescott becoming the first new arrival at the Madejski Stadium this summer.

"I have spoken with a number of clubs regarding the possibility of doing business, one of which was Wolves," Hammond told PA Sport. "But the conversations I have had with [Wolves chief executive] Jez Moxey have been nothing more than general enquiries."
