Leeds United boss Brian McDermott says he does not expect Reading would want to sell striker Adam Le Fondre to Leeds.

McDermott has been linked with a move for the striker who he signed during his time at the Madejski Stadium. Le Fondre, who is Reading`s leading goalscorer this season despite making most of his appearances from the substitutes bench, recently said he would consider a move in a bid to gain regular first team football.

The Leeds boss was asked about Le Fondre during his weekly press conference, saying, “I don`t think Reading would sell Adam Le Fondre to Leeds.

“I don`t think it would happen, whether I wanted him or not. He is a Reading player, nothing to do with me. It is all speculation.”


McDermott is still keen to add to his squad and a striker could be high on the agenda with Matt Smith ruled out for the next three games through suspension.
