Le Fondre targets Reading departure

Reading striker Adam Le FondreCardiff are reported to be keen on Adam Le Fondre, who admits he may have to leave Reading in search of first-team football.

Le Fondre has managed to bag 12 goals this season despite a season of struggle for the Royals, but he has still been unable to command a regular first XI place.

The 26-year-old has also struggled to force his way into the side since new boss Nigel Adkins took over and he admits the future at the Madejski Stadium does not look a bright one for him.

There will be no shortage of interest in the striker though and Cardiff, who will be playing in the Premier League next season, have him on their wanted list.

“I’m like every footballer. I want to start, I want to play games and at this moment I’m not getting anything,” Le Fondre revealed.

“We needed goals and that is what I bring to the table. I want to play every game, I want to start games but most importantly I want to come on the pitch and affect things and make an impact.

“It is disappointing from my point of view that when we are pressing so hard I can’t come on the pitch and influence it. I have no idea what happens with me. It’s in the club’s hands. I’ve had a half-decent season by my standards.”
