Former Reading favourites Kevin Doyle and Tom McIntyre have spoken out against the club's decision to sell Bearwood Park to League One rivals Wycombe Wanderers.

The Royals have confirmed that discussions are underway and exclusivity granted for the Chairboys to purchase the £50m state-of-the-art facility in order to cover a short-term funding issue.

However, this has put off potential buyers and leaves the club in a race against time to find new buyers- and that is if Dai Yongge is even motivated to sell as per his word.

Striker Doyle, who spoke out against the EFL last week, took to social media after the news broke.

 Tom McIntyre, an Academy graduate who only left the club for £75,000 in January, now plays for Portsmouth but is injured until the end of the season.

Speaking on his boyhood club, the 25-year-old added: "What an absolutely shocking decision! Nothing short of a disgrace."

Even popular Reading band, the Amazons, have spoken out.

They launched this year's third kit, based on the Purple Turtle, in the club's pre-season fan event.
