Reading FC striker George Puscas has reportedly rejected the chance to leave the club on a loan deal.

Turkish outfit Kasimpasa had been linked with a move for the Romanian forward and had submitted an offer to take Puscas on loan for the 2021/22 season.

The Reading Chronicle understands that Puscas has rejected the chance to move to the Süper Lig in favor of fighting for a starting berth in Berkshire.

Puscas suffered an injury-plagued campaign last season where he was hampered with persistent hernia issues.

He is currently isolating but is expected to be pushing for a place in the squad for the final pre-season game with Crystal Palace next weekend.

The 25-year-old has three years remaining on his current contract at the club.
