Reading's Harper hopes to prove Wolves boss McCarthy wrong

Reading midfielder James Harper has confirmed he's missed out on a move to Wolves over concerns with his fitness.

"I respect Mick's (McCarthy) decision but I don't agree with it," said Harper. "I was just recovering from a groin injury and when Mick looked at the scans he told me I wouldn't be ready. I think he is wrong.

"Since then he has been to the Madejski Stadium to watch me play and I hope my performance demonstrated that I can do a job.

"Reading have accepted a fee and it's not a nice feeling when you think they don't want you. Everyone wants to feel wanted."
