Reading Want More Than £2m From Boro!

Last updated : 30 January 2009 By Boro Mad

We read Boro boss Gareth Southgate has only £2m to spend, and that is what he has offered Reading.

But the 28-year-old, who was Southgate's prime target last summer, is valued at £4m by his club.

Boro's offer is much lower than the £4m they allegedly offered six months ago, more closer to the £2m they were prepared to fork out for Ben Watson of Crystal Palace.

It's a bit of a surprise as Reading are chasing promotion, but allegedly Reading boss Steve Coppell is prepared to do business if a deal can be arranged which suits both parties.
