Leandro Bacuna was spotted outside Madejski Stadium this afternoon ahead of his soon-to-be confirmed switch from Aston Villa to Reading.

The 25-year-old midfielder is on the verge of completing a permanent switch to Berkshire after Royals saw a bid of around £1.5m accepted by Villa.

Fans spotted the versatile Dutchman outside the Madejski Stadium's hotel ahead of Royals' Championship clash with Fulham.

The deal is expected to be officially announced soon.
