HEC­TOR’S STILL ROYAL FOR NOW

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

READ­ING man­ager Steve Clarke in­sists Chelsea have not trig­gered the re­call clause in Michael Hec­tor’s loan.

The Premier League cham­pi­ons have chopped and changed their back­line through­out this sea­son and this week lost cap­tain John Terry to in­jury.

Hec­tor, 23, was signed by Chelsea on dead­line day from Read­ing, but re­turned on loan leav­ing the Blues with an op­tion to ter­mi­nate the deal.

Clark said: “Chelsea haven’t been in touch with me and as far as I know they haven’t been in touch with the club.

“I think it would be bet­ter for Michael to fin­ish the sea­son here.”
