Newcastle, Birmingham chasing Reading striker Long

Reading striker Shane Long is wanted by Newcastle United and Birmingham City.

The News of the World says the two Premier League clubs are prepared to pay close to £3 million for the Republic of Ireland striker, who has two years left on his Reading contract.

But Birmingham City have the edge over Newcastle in terms of finances and are prepared to offer him £5,000 a week more in wages.
