Reading boss Rodgers delighted with deal for Chelsea's Bertrand

Reading boss Brendan Rodgers is delighted with his season-long loan deal for Chelsea fullback Ryan Bertrand.

"He's a big talent," Rodgers told the club website. "He's a boy who has obviously been groomed to fill in for Ashley Cole in the future.

"I was involved in Ryan coming to Chelsea when we took him to Gillingham at 16.

"I have worked closely with him for three years or so and nurtured his development and he's developed into a top-class young player."
