Rodgers moves to Chelsea
Reading academy director Brendan Rodgers is leaving the club to join Chelsea, reports BBC Radio Berkshire.

The Irishman was approached by Blues boss Jose Mourinho to head up the youth set-up at Stamford Bridge.

Director of football Nick Hammond told Reading's website: "We are very disappointed to lose Brendan."

And Rodgers himself added: "The opportunity to work with a European Cup-winning manager at a club like Chelsea was too good to turn down."
