Reading register an interest in signing Chelsea youngster Islam Feruz, according to reports.

Reading are interested in taking Chelsea defender Islam Feruz on loan in January, according to reports.

The 17-year-old moved to Stamford Bridge from Celtic last year after failing to agree a professional contract with the Scottish Premier League side.

Feruz has since impressed in Chelsea's youth team and he also scored twice for Scotland's Under-21 side against Portugal last week.

According to Clubcall, such performances have attracted the interest of Reading and Brian McDermott is believed to be ready to make a move for the defender in January.

Reading could face competition from Barcelona and Sporting Lisbon for Feruz's signature.
