Reading are set to offer Tyler Blackett a new contract, amid reports that Turkish giants Fenerbahçe are interested in signing the 25-year-old.

The Reading Chronicle understands that the new deal would be a two-and-a-half year deal, which would keep Blackett at the Madejski Stadium until 2022.

Earlier today, Reading announced that Josh Barrett had left on a permanent deal and that Joao Virginia's loan deal has been cancelled and he has returned to Merseyside. 

The versatile defender has been in good form in recent weeks for the Royals, picking up three assists in the wins over Preston North End and Fulham.
