Reading boss Coppell reveals West Ham bid for Shorey

Reading have rejected a bid from West Ham United for fullback Nicky Shorey.

Royals boss Steve Coppell described the offer as "nigh on derisory" and insisted the 26-year-old was still on course to play against the Hammers on Saturday rather than for them.

He said: "I cannot deny there was a written offer made.

"Given the price of players today we thought it was nigh on a derisory offer. We turned it down immediately and we have had no contact since."
