Bertrand to quit Chelsea for Reading stay

Ryan Bertrand is set to reject a new deal at Chelsea to sign permanently with Reading.

The Mirror says former England under-21 left back Bertrand is negotiating an extension to his current deal but wants guarantees of first-team football next season.

Bertrand, who has made 37 appearances for Reading, said: "I am talking to Chelsea at the moment but I really need to play first team football.

"If they cannot offer me that I guess I will have to look elsewhere.

"I have played more than 100 league games now and for the under-21s so you would think at most clubs you would get a chance in the first team.

"That is obviously not the case at Chelsea. There are a few important decisions that need to be made.'
