OLA KEEN TO STAY A ROYAL

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

OLA John wants to set up camp in Read­ing on a per­ma­nent ba­sis – with the on-loan Ben­fica winger declar­ing him­self happy at the Made­jski Sta­dium.

The 23-year-old is hit­ting his best form in Eng­land af­ter fea­tur­ing in boss Brian McDer­mott’s plans heav­ily of late – though he con­cedes the ball is in Ben­fica’s court.

“I hope I can stay,” he said. “I’m re­ally happy with how things are go­ing at the mo­ment, but in foot­ball any­thing can hap­pen. Maybe I have to go back to Ben­fica. No­body knows.

“I haven’t spo­ken with them yet.We will do that in the sum­mer and then I’ll see what my op­tions are and what Read­ing can do.”
