Reading are set to unveil Nigel Adkins as their new manager today.

The Daily Mail says Adkins will be named as the new manager of Reading on Tuesday after talks with owner Anton Zingarevich.

The Royals called a press conference for 9.15am on Tuesday at the Madejski Stadium, when the former Southampton manager will be unveiled.

The appointment of Adkins ends Reading's search for a new leader after the sacking of Brian McDermott.

Adkins himself was axed by the Saints in January but has remained on gardening leave after failing to finalise a severance package on the three years left of his contract.
