Rumour - David Forde

Reading join the chase to complete deal for ex-West Ham goalkeeper
BY CHARLIE FIRTH ⋅ MAY 19, 2015 ⋅ POST A COMMENT

Reading and Fulham are the latest sides to be linked with Millwall goalkeeper David Forde, according to News at Den.

The two Championship sides join Derby County in the race for the Republic of Ireland international’s signature.

Both sides could lose their first team goalkeepers this summer, with Fulham’s England under-21 international Marcus Bettinelli being linked with a move away to champions of England Chelsea.

Meanwhile Reading stopper Adam Federici is a target for several sides, as his contract expires this summer.

The Australian international would seemingly like to stay at the Madejski, but it depends on the terms offered to him by the club, after an incredible season that saw him win player of the year.

Millwall’s relegation mean their talented 35-year-old has emerged as a target for those looking for a good keeper or a top back up solution.

Lions manager Neil Harris has already admitted that the Lions relegation could mean they are to lose their number one.

Reading have also looked at Richard O’Donnell from Walsall as a potential replacement for Federici if he decides his future lies elsewhere.

I think that's stretching the term 'incredible' somewhat.

Millwall fans don't think a lot of him from the feedback I've seen. Very underwhelming.

35 aswell, wouldn't exactly provide a long term solution..

O'Donnell sounds a lot more appealing being younger and winning POTS.

If he was 5-10 years younger he'd be decent enough back up.
