Reading are interested in signing Wolves defender Ethan Ebanks-Landell, according to the Reading Chronicle journalist Courtney Friday.

The 25-year-old spent last season on loan at MK Dons and played 35 games for them in League One. He could become available this summer after Wolves were promoted to the Premier League.

Reading have been busy in recent weeks bolstering their squad in preparation for another season in the Championship. Their manager, Paul Clement, has signed Andy Yiadom, David Meyler and John O’Shea all on free transfers. Ethan Ebanks-Landell could be the next one through the entrance door at the Madejski Stadium.

The centre-back started his career at Wolves and has been with the Midlands club since he was 9. He has played 51 games all together during his time at Wolves but has spent a lot of time out on loan where he has gained first-team experience.

Ebanks-Landell’s first taste of senior football came through stints with Bury in 2013 where he played 26 games for them in the third tier. He then spent the 2016/17 campaign on loan at Sheffield United and was a key player for the Blades side who won the League One title under Chris Wilder.

Sheffield United were keen to sign him last summer but Wolves opted to loan him out to MK Dons instead. However, Ebanks-Landell could not prevent the Dons from being relegated to League Two last season.

Reading are eager to boost their defence for next season and they would be an ideal new home for Ebanks-Landell.
