Chris Wood has been a key player for Millwall during a loan spell from West Bromwich Albion but has since joined Leicester City, leaving Jackett to look elsewhere.

Church has been identified as a target and it is understood that an offer has been made to bring him in from Reading.

The 24-year-old, who has recently had a spell on loan with Huddersfield Town, has been with Reading since the start of his career but is out of contract in the summer.
