Reading boss Brian McDermott won't shy away from making a big-name signing.
McDermott is keen to point out that Reading will look to bring in high-profile, and potentially costly, additions if there is a deal to be done.
He said: "We haven't broken the bank, I certainly haven't in the last three years and we probably haven't in the last 12 years as a club.
"That's not to say that if a player came in that we felt was right for us, at the right cost, then the owner would have to make a decision to back that deal. Then we will wait and see.
"It's not a case of we wouldn't if it was right."
