Reading's Federici coy on Tottenham, Liverpool links

Reading's Adam Federici has remained coy about rumours linking him with Premier League clubs such as Tottenham and Liverpool.

The 26-year old has emerged as one of the most talented goalkeepers in the English Championship in the past 18 months and has attracted slight interest from the aforementioned clubs.

But the down-to-earth Australian, believed to be worth around £5million on the transfer market, said there is no point getting worked up about speculation as things generally don't work out the way they set out to.

triballfootball.com asked the New South Wales-born custodian what he thought of the links but he said he does not read into them too much.

"Only when they are true," he laughed.

"You get a bit of banter at training if someone says you are in the paper for going somewhere or other but at the end of the day it comes down to the two clubs and you don't really get a say in it."

Federici is currently sidelined with a medial ligament strain which he sustained on February 19 against Watford. He expected back in the Reading line-up in the next few weeks.
