Reading's McDermott remaining calm on likes of Blackburn's Roberts, Doncaster's Sharp

Reading manager Brian McDermott says his club does have interest in a trio of players but is not putting too much focus on winter signing.

The Royals have been linked with Blackburn Rovers striker Jason Roberts, Doncaster Rovers frontman Billy Sharp and Brentford defender Karleigh Osborne but McDermott is remaining calm about the likelihood of him signing these types of players.

"With Sean (Morrison) going out on loan (to Huddersfield Town), there is a possibility that we might bring in someone like Karleigh Osborne to cover," McDermott told getreading.

"Jason Roberts is a player I know well, a good player and he has experience. But he's not our player, he's at Blackburn. And Billy Sharp is a Doncaster player.

"We have to maintain the team dynamic here, which has been a huge reason behind our success, and I will only bring in players who enhance the group as players and people."
