Reading chairman Sir John Madejski is comfortable with the delay to the full takeover of the Championship club. Russian Anton Zingarevich was due to buy the remaining 49% of the club held by Madejski by the end of September.

That deadline passed and Madejski, who has been asked to stay on as chairman for two more years, says no date has been discussed to complete the deal.

"There is no rush, he owns 51% and I own 49% and am a junior shareholder," Madejski told BBC Radio Berkshire.
