Kelly set for Reading move
Republic of Ireland and Fulham defender Stephen Kelly is having a medical at Reading today ahead of a permanent move, manager Martin Jol has revealed.
The 29-year-old was a key player for the Cottagers last season but has lost his starting berth to Sascha Riether this term.
Kelly is set to leave the west Londoners in search of first-team football, with a permanent move to Reading close to completion.
"We will try to get one or two players in,'' Jol said of his January transfer plans.
“One example is right-back as Stephen Kelly, who went for a medical at Reading today. It is close to completion.
“I expect him to join Reading permanently.”
International right-back Kelly has been at Craven Cottage since 2009, making 71 appearances in all competitions.
