Reading boss Nigel Adkins is chasing Stoke City striker Cameron Jerome.

The People says Adkins is in talks with Stoke for Jerome.

Adkins is prepared to pay £2million, but it depends on the Potters finding a new forward.

The Royals' boss is willing to wait for the loan window to re-open if Jerome is still out of favour.
