Sky Sports understands Reading are lining up a surprise move to bring Nicky Shorey back to the club.

Shorey is available on a free transfer and is looking for a new club after leaving West Brom earlier this summer.

A number of clubs are thought to be keen on signing the former England international, but Reading are ready to offer him a return to the Madejski Stadium.

Reading boss Brian McDermott is keen to bolster his squad and he sees Shorey's experience as a valuable addition to his plans for life back in the Premier League

Shorey, who enjoyed seven seasons at Reading before leaving for Aston Villa in 2008, is a huge fans' favourite and he played a key role in the club's first promotion to the Premier League in 2006.
