Reading tracking Orient ace

Reading are keeping tabs on Leyton Orient defender Elliot Omozusi, Sky Sports understands.

The 25-year-old was one of Orient's stand-out performers last season as they reached the League One play-off final before losing to Rotherham.

Omozusi was virtually an ever-present in Russell Slade's side, making 50 appearances for Orient and his performances have not gone unnoticed.

Orient took up an option on Omozusi's contract to extend it for a futher 12 months with his previous deal expiring this summer.

Reading are believed to be weighing up a move for Omozusi and are ready to test Orient's resolve to keep hold of the full-back.
