Former Reading goalkeeper Ali Al-Habsi has put a number of Championship and League One clubs on red alert as he is willing to return to England this summer, the Chronicle understands.

HITC reports that the 37-year-old is likely to be released by his club, Al-Hilal, to make space in the squad.

Al-Habsi was something of a cult hero in his time at the Madejski and the Oman international is reportedly keen in returning to the EFL.
