Reading chief confirms MLS talks for Altidore

Reading chief Nicky Hammond admits they made enquiries after New York Red Bull striker Jozy Altidore.

Hammond told the official club site, "We spoke to the MLS but made no direct contact with the player himself. He's an exciting young talent but it became clear that the MLS didn't want to lose him.

"There would also have been work permit issues because he's not played many senior international games yet."
