Reading are close to sealing the signing of Liverpool midfielder Ovie Ejaria on loan, the Chronicle understands.

Ejaria had an impressive spell at the Madejski last term and it is understood the club are in advanced talks to re-sign the former Rangers man.

The 21-year-old wasn't in the squad for a U23 game on Sunday for Liverpool despite scoring in the previous game, fuelling speculation that Ejaria may be leaving the club.
