Transfer Tales: Long, CMS, Morison

Transfer Tales: Long, CMS, Morison

Today's transfer speculation seems to be stuck in some sort of infinite loop...

Reading chairman John Madejski has made Celtic's interest in top scorer and supposed City target Shane Long public, and warned that he will not be sold on the cheap following the Royal's play-off final defeat against Swansea.

He'll apparently cost around £4m according to the Daily Mail which still seems fairly cheap frankly, but let battle commence.

Royals duo Matt Mills and Jimmy Kebe have also been linked, just 24 hours after being named on Twitter as the only other Reading players we might want. Coincidence? No.

There was talk over the weekend of Peter Whittingham signing from Cardiff for around £1m but we've probably missed the boat reporting this one.

City's bid for Steve Morison was reportedly £1.8m with 'minimal add-ons' as opposed to the £2.5m widely quoted according to one of the journos in that there London.

Craig Mackail-Smith is also attracting interest from a number of top-flight clubs after signalling his intent to leave Peterborough by saying it would be a 'dream come true' to play in the Premier League.

Everton and QPR are the other interested parties according to Sky Sports, but City will use Cody McDonald and/or Chris Martin as bait for Morison and/or Mackail-Smith depending on which site/message board/twitter user you are inclined to believe.
