Stoke striker Kitson rejected January offers to make Reading return

Stoke City striker Dave Kitson says he rejected offers in January in the hope of returning to Reading.

Stoke's record signing was given the opportunity to kick-start his season during the January transfer window but chose to wait for a move back to the Madejski and is raring to go after signing until the end of the season.

Kitson told the club's official website: "I had opportunities to go out on loan from Stoke in January but in my mind I was waiting to see if Reading came in.

"A lot of people have moved mountains to make this move happen and I am very grateful to be back.

"We are sitting third but if we win our games in hand we'll be in a nice position. All the top teams have faltered and it's time to kick on and make it happen."
