Reading are understood to be lining up a deal to sign Nottingham Forest defender Jack Hobbs.

Reading are reportedly lining up a move for Nottingham Forest defender Jack Hobbs.

The Royals narrowly lost out to Forest for the 26-year-old's signature when he left Hull City at the start of the year.

However, Reading boss Nigel Adkins now hopes to bring the centre-back to the Madejski Stadium before the end of the summer, according to Sky Sports News.

Adkins and Hobbs worked together at Scunthorpe United when the defender joined the club on loan in 2008.
