Reading offer quartet new deals


Reading have offered new contracts to four players following their relegation from the Premier League but a further six have been released.

Glen Little, Michael Duberry, Ben Hamer and Scott Davies are out of contract this summer and have been offered new deals at the Madejski Stadium.

But John Oster, Ulises De La Cruz, John Halls, Graham Stack, Adam Bygrave and Aaron Brown will all be leaving.

Royals boss Steve Coppell is still assessing his future with the club.

Winger Little, 32, joined Reading from Bolton in 2004 but only made two substitute appearances last season because of a long-term injury.

Former Chelsea centre-back Duberry, also 32, ended the campaign as a first-team regular.

Hamer is a 20-year-old goalkeeper who spent most of the season on loan with Brentford while Davies, who turned 20 in April, was farmed out to Blue Square Premier champions Aldershot.

Ex-Wales international winger John Oster, 29, leaves after three years at the club.

Defender De La Cruz, 34, and midfielder Halls, 26, both joined in 2006.

Goalkeeper Stack, 26, spent most of the season at Wolves, while defender Bygrave, 19 and midfielder Brown, 24, both failed to break into the Royals first team during their time with the club.
