HECTOR’S STILL ROYAL FOR NOW
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.”
