Reading boss Adkins welcomes imminent deal for Southampton's Sharp

Reading boss Nigel Adkins is delighted with their imminent loan capture of Southampton striker Billy Sharp.

Sharp is set to join the Royals this week.

"Billy is a player I had at Scunthorpe. He's a player I took to Southampton and we got promoted," Adkins told the Reading Post.

"He hasn't played for a while now but he's a player I've always admired and would always have in my mind-set to bring to any football club.

"I want to score goals this season and it's about having the strength in depth of players to go and do it."
