Reading boss McDermott explains source of Inzaghi rumours

Reading boss Brian McDermott has ruled out a move for AC Milan legend Pippo Inzaghi.

McDermott admits discussing Inzaghi with an agent.

“I know exactly where that has come from…I was sat in Tallinn with Nick Hammond and one of our scouts [last week],” McDermott recalled to Getreading.

“We were introduced to an Italian agent and we said hello. We started talking about numerous players and he said, ‘I can get you Inzaghi.’ I said, ‘Okay, that's good, he's old isn't he?’

“I told him that we wouldn't be going down that road and I was happy with the players that I have and we carried on talking.

“That translated as, ‘we've offered him a contract worth about £960,000’.”
