According to reports in the Daily Mail, Reading’s valuation of Shane Long has caused West Bromwich Albion to drop out of the chase for the in –demand striker.
Tipperary born Long is one of this Championship’s most sought after strikers this summer following his goal scoring exploits last season.
Reading are keen to keep the player, who only has a year left on his contract and have a slapped a 10 million price tag on the player.
That tag has deterred Roy Hodgson who has dropped out of the running for the player and instead has switched his attentions to Fulham striker Andrew Johnson.
