Paul McShane denies report that he's been transfer listed

Paul McShane has rejected claims that he has been transfer listed.

The Irish defender has been linked with a move away from Reading in the January transfer window and one particular report claimed that McShane had already been transfer listed by the Royals.

McShane has only made four appearances for his club this season due to an ongoing hamstring injury but he is determined to return to fitness and give his best to Reading.

The 33-year-old went on record to reject claims in the media that Reading are aiming to offload the Wicklow man this winter.

"In response to a recent false report that I’ve been transfer listed by Reading FC, I would just like to add on record that this is not the case," McShane tweeted.

"I continue to focus on my commitment to Reading FC as a player and captain and to get back fit as soon as possible.

"Since signing, my aim has always been to help Reading FC to success and having come close in 2017, it continues to be my aim.

"It has been very frustrating to have only played four games since January 2018 due to injury, but I will be back to help the team in every way I can. Keep the faith."
