READING PREPARES SUMMER SWOOP FOR YAKUBU


Newly Promoted side, Reading are preparing a summer swoop for Blackburn's Nigerian striker Yakubu Aiyebgeni.
The Championship winners have placed the Nigerian at the top of their summer shopping list and want him to lead their line when they return to the Premier League next season.

However,it has been revealed that Reading will only make a move if Rovers are relegated from the top flight.

The Berkshire club have won the Championship despite scoring a relatively paltry 69 goals in 45 games, with their top scorers Adam Le Fondre with 12 goals, Noel Hunt (eight) and Simon Church (seven).

Yakubu, 29 (Football age or real age?)  has two years remaining on his Blackburn contract after moving from Everton for £1.5 million last summer.
 
Yakubu, who is playing for his fifth English club since moving to Portsmouth in 2003, revealed in February that he rejected interest from QPR in the January window.
