Defender Bongani Khumalo is set to leave his loan deal at Reading to return to Tottenham.

The 25-year old South African international has had an unsuccessful spell with the Royals making just six appearances since his arrival last summer.

Khumalo joined Spurs from homeland club SuperSport United in January 2011 but struggled to make an impact at White Hart Lane and was initially loaned to Preston North End before his stint at the Madejski Stadium.
