Reading look set to sign prolific Coventry City striker Marc McNulty, according to Coventry Telegraph.

It is believed that Coventry City have turned away interest from Reading by rejecting two bids, but the Championship club have returned with a third offer of around £1.5million including add ons.

Marc McNulty will need to undergo a medical at Madejski Stadium before completing the moved to Reading from Coventry City.

The striker scored 23 league goals in 45 games under Mark Robins last season and Coventry are keen for him to remain at the Ricoh Arena next year.

The 25-year-old was a major part in Coventry winning promotion via the League Two play-offs and Coventry boss Mark Robins would love to have Marc McNulty leading their front line in League One next season.

Speaking about interest in McNulty last week, Robins said: “At the end of the day every player has a value, and that’s not an invitation for a ‘come and get me,’ or anything like that. I want to keep all the best players.”

He added this about if he thinks Coventry will lose Marc McNulty and Tom Bayliss: “No, I am not expecting that at all, but who knows.”

“You just never know. I don’t know what people are thinking.”

“I don’t know how busy their agents are going to be and how much they want to take the player away, or if the player wants to…”

“From my point of view I have got a good relationship with all the players. I spoke to Sparky (McNulty) last night and we do talk about things.”

“I am open and honest and if a club hits a number then I will speak to the player and say they have hit the number and they can go and speak to them.”

“But, ultimately, it’s about them knuckling down and working as hard as they possibly can.”
