Stoke City have reportedly joined the race to sign Reading midfielder Andy Rinomhota.

The 25-year-old graduated from the Royals academy and has made almost 150 appearances, winning the Player of the Season award in 2019.

One of the five who are out of contract but have been offered deals by the club, reports suggest that the board are yet to hear back from any regarding their future.

With pre-season just a fortnight away, there are currently less than 10 players signed on ahead of next year.

It has already been reported in the past that Nigel Pearson's Bristol City are big fans of the combative midfielder and are weighing up a potential move in the coming months.

However, according to BristolLive Michael O'Neil and Stoke City have pledged their interest, although it is nothing more than that at this stage.

Rinomhota, along with the likes of Josh Laurent, Andy Yiadom and Tom Holmes, are all out of contract at the end of June but have been offered deals to remain in Berkshire.


Reading Chronicle:


Both the Robins and the Potters finished above Reading last season, however neither impressed and both finished in the bottom half.

But without a transfer embargo and no threat of a possible points deduction, both could be seen as more attractive propositions than Paul Ince's side.
