Reading have agreed a £7.5m deal with Fulham for Sone Aluko, according to Sky Sports News.

The forward is out of contract in the summer, although Fulham had the option of extending it for a further year if they so wished, however the club have now opted to sell the forward a year after signing him on a free.

Slavisa Jokanovic said in his post match press conference after the Wolfsburg friendly that he wanted to keep hold of Aluko, even naming him as captain in Tom Cairney's absence, but the club have now agreed a deal with Reading for their forward.

Aluko is due at Hogwood for a medical ahead of his move, which looks set to be confirmed imminently as Fulham look to other options.

Jaap Stam, who is a big fan of the 28-year-old, spoke about Aluko at the weekend, saying: "He can be a big asset for us.

"He is the type of player I think can make the squad better and give us something different."
