Reading youngster Danny Loader has emerged as a prime target for newly promoted Wycombe Wanderers, the Bucks Free Press understands.

Chairboys boss Ainsworth is said to be a big admirer of 17-year-old Loader, who was once a product of Wanderers' academy.

Royals identified his talent at a young age and lured him to Hogwood Park where he has continued his development.

Wanderers, who secured promotion to League One under Ainsworth, are keen on bolstering their attacking options.

And Loader, who was on the fringes of first-team football for Reading last season, could return to Adams Park for the 2018/19 season.
