Reading are ready to move for Doncaster striker Billy Sharp this week.

The Royals are flush with funding after Russian investor Anton Zingarevich put the cash in place for signings in the January transfer window.

Doncaster have offered Sharp a new contract after interest from Leicester, who are now looking to sign Aston Villa's Nathan Delfouneso on loan.

Leicester City's Japanese midfielder Yuki Abe has returned to Japan.
