Guess what? Brendan Who? now wants Jobi McAnuff for £800k – the same price he offered for Smithy!!!

Just because the right Royal shower in Berkshire can`t afford top target Tommy Smith that doesn`t mean they will automatically turn their attentions to the Hornets other flankster?

Well, apparently it does, according to the dog-earred hacks at The Mirror, who reckon Reading are “trying to sign” Jobi as Rodgers is “a big fan” of the Watford wideman.

Those in the know in tabloid-land reckon the Hornets are holding out for £1.2m for the ex-Palace flyer, who, only last week, said he was overjoyed by the appointment of Malky Mackay and was excited about the future at Vicarage Road.

Ok, so Jobi did add that he “was raring to go” – but presumably he didn`t mean it quite so literally.
