Reading boss Brian McDermott can't see them re-signing Gylfi Sigurdsson.

The former Royals ace is on-loan at Swansea City from Hoffenheim and being linked with Manchester United.

McDermott said: "I would think that Gylfi would have his pick of the top four clubs in the country. There is no doubt about that.

"Could he not play for Barcelona? I think he could. I believe that. He has such a fantastic mentality and nothing would faze him. He could play at any club in the world. He's as good as anyone I've seen."
