JAAP Stam has voiced his frustration over the ongoing takeover saga at Reading FC – hinting he does not know where his future lies.

Chinese siblings Dai Yongge and Dai Xiu Li are attempting to buy a majority 75% share from the club’s current Thai owners.

The Chinese brother and sister have already had two meetings with Football League bosses in a bid to pass the standard owners and directors test.

However, the pair, whose attempt to buy Hull City for £130m a few years ago was thrown out by the Premier League, appear no closer to sealing the deal.

Stam let out his frustrations in the aftermath of a 1-0 home defeat by QPR.

He said: “The owners are still the Thais, I don’t know if it’s going to happen with the Chinese people.

“Everyone is asking me what’s going to happen but I don’t know if there are going to be more transfers or whatever.

“It does frustrate me because I think you need clarity and structure within the club so everyone knows what’s happening. It’s important for the players as well.

“I’m willing to answer questions, but it annoys me that we don’t know what’s going to happen.”

He also told BBC Radio Berkshire: “When I joined Reading I thought I would be able to build a team and take steps towards the Premier League.

“But with the club up for sale, you do not know what the new owners want to do.

“The old owners want to sell, so I don’t know if we can still build a team for the future.

“I’m the type who likes building a team. There needs to be structure in the club and we need a certain vision. To be fair, I don’t know if it’s there at the moment.”

With the ownership saga dragging on this long, Stam also raised question marks about his own future with the Royals.

“I like the club and the players and I’m enjoying it over here,” he declared. “But it’s good for a manager to know what’s happening to the club in the future.

“If that’s not the case, who knows what’s going to happen?”

In the wake of his comments, one fan revealed it would be a "travesty" if the club was to lose Stam at the helm.

The Dutchman joined the Royals on an initial two-year contract in June 2016.
