Ex-Villa star Hendrie handed Reading chance

Former Aston Villa and England midfielder Lee Hendrie is trialling with Reading.

The midfielder has linked up with the Royals and manager Brian McDermott is keen to give the 33-year-old a chance at the Madejski Stadium.

"We have brought in Lee to have a look at him and he'll probably be in and around the squad for a little while," McDermott told the club's official website.

"I know him from his Aston Villa days, but I watched him playing out wide for Sheffield United and that didn't seem to be his position. I believe he's a player who has got to be in amongst it in the middle of the pitch."
