Championship outfit Cardiff City are considering Reading boss Paul Ince as a potential replacement for Steve Morison, reports suggest.

Former Millwall legend Morison was sacked over the weekend with the Bluebirds 19th in the division, winning three of the first 10 matches.

Former Royal Veljko Paunovic is said to be willing to put his name in the ring for the role, but fresh reports claim the Welsh outfit are interested in luring former England captain Ince to the Cardiff City Stadium.

FootyInsider and FootballLeagueWorld are reporting that the 1927 FA Cup winners are weighing up the possibility, with no matches for a fortnight due to the internatioanl break.

The 54-year-old has Reading in third, winning six of their first 10 matches.

He was nominated for August Manager of the Month, losing out to Paul Heckingbottom of Sheffield United.

Originally joining as interim manager last season, he has had to work under difficult circumstances due to the club's financial mismanagement- signing only free agents and loan deals.

His son Tom joined at a similar time, scoring twice for the club since arriving from Stoke City.

Reading came from behind to beat Cardiff 2-1 in August, the club's first win of the season.
