Relegated English Championship side Reading are stepping up their attempts to sign Celtic striker Gary Hooper.

Royals manager Nigel Adkins is keen on a reunion with a player who previously served under him for Scunthorpe United until arriving at Parkhead in a £2.4 deal three years ago.

Elsewhere, Hull City have rejected suggestions of having a £4m bid turned down for Hooper as they prepare for their return to the Premier League.
