Reading manager Steve Clarke closing in on new signings
Reading manager Steve Clarke says he is close to securing a number of new signings ahead of pre-season.
Clarke is yet to bring in any new players following a 19th-place finish in last season's Championship.
"It's been a busy summer. There's a lot that's been done and hopefully you'll see the results in the coming weeks," Clarke told the club's website.
"I've identified quite a few targets and we've worked hard to try and get them.
"Some have fallen by the wayside already, a lot are still ongoing.
"Two or three are quite close to completion and that would be pleasing if we can get them in before all the players are back in a couple of weeks time."
Reading travel to Thailand for a pre-season tour from the first week of July with a match at Bangkok's National Stadium on 8 July.
They begin the Championship season away against Birmingham City on 8 August.
