25-Year-Old Defender Tottenham Hotspur Premier
After bringing Adrian Mariappa and Chris Gunter onboard over the last few days, manager Brian McDermott has submitted a £4 million bid to Tottenham for Naughton, The Daily Mirror reports.
The Reading boss' summer splurge apparently isn't over, as he wants to use every last cent at his disposal to prepare his side for its Premier League campaign. Although the 23 year old Naughton has only featured for Tottenham once in his career, he had a successful year long loan at Norwich City, helping the side to a 12th place finish in its first Premiership campaign. Blocked by Kyle Walker at Tottenham, Naughton would step into the first choice right fullback role at Reading. While he may not offer a goalscoring threat, he would be a reliable back four player.
