Reading star Matt Mills is the latest Royals player to be linked with a move away from the Madejski Stadium to the Premier League. However boss Brian McDermott is hoping to keep the highly rated centre half in the Championship.
Midland outfits Wolves and Stoke are reported to be among those chasing the 24-year-old, with it felt that Mills is ready to make the step up into the Premier League.
"He (Mills) wasn't in the team when I got the job. He has grown in the last year as a player and as a person," McDermott told the Bracknell Forest Post.
"I made him skipper and at centre-back we have some really good players. It is a good group here and the group is everything to me. We want to keep our best players.
"There will be interest in a lot of our players for sure. When it comes about and is concrete then clubs will speak.
"If something comes then we will make a decision on what's right for the club. From my point of view we want to keep this group together."
