Reading boss Brian McDermott says two-goal Jimmy Kebe is great to have around the club.

This season, the Reading midfielder has come out in public to criticise his team-mates and jokingly tweeted that he had joined Newcastle’s French revolution.

"He is a funny boy," admitted McDermott after Kebe's brace helped them to victory over Sunderland. "He’s a great lad, got a dry sense of humour, he works hard, he is a team man and now he has added far post headers to his repertoire.

"The fans love him, quite right. I might go out with him because he would be good fun to go out with."
