Sky Bet League One club Coventry City have accepted a transfer offer from Reading for striker Marc McNulty according to reports from BBC Sport.

The 25-year-old Edinburgh-born frontman has been on the Berkshire club’s radar for the last few weeks and The Royals now look poised to get their man.

It has been reported that Coventry City have accepted a transfer offer from Reading believed to be in the region of £1.5 million. The Royals were thought to have previously failed with two attempts to sign McNulty but are now set to discuss personal terms with the player.

The striker started his senior career north of the border with Livingston where he netted 48 goals in just 122 appearances. A move to Sheffield United followed, although McNulty struggled to impress at Bramall Lane despite featuring heavily in his first season with The Blades.

The Scot was loaned out to both Portsmouth and Bradford City before joining current club Coventry City on a two-year deal last summer. McNulty bagged an impressive 28 goals for The Sky Blues last term as they won promotion back to Sky Bet League One via the Play-Offs.

Coventry City manager Mark Robins has confirmed that some of the funds generated by McNulty’s move to Reading will be reinvested in the squad at The Ricoh Arena.
