Leeds United manager Brian McDermott is planning a raid on his former club Reading for striker Noel Hunt and full-back Ian Harte.

The duo both played for McDermott at the Madejski and will be free agents at the end of the season, says the Mirror.

Harte, 34, has already had a spell at Leeds and is resigned to being released.

Hunt, 30, has been offered a new one-year deal but wants the security of a longer-term contract.
