Hendrie earns trial at Reading

01 September 2010 11:00
Reading have confirmed that former Aston Villa midfielder Lee Hendrie is training with the club as he looks to earn a contract.

The 33-year-old has been without a club since the end of last season and has joined up with Brian McDermott's men - who are on the lookout for a goalscoring midfielder after selling Gylfi Sigurdsson on Tuesday.

McDermott said: "We have bought Lee in to have a look at him and he'll probably be in and around the squad for a little while.

"I watched him play out wide for Sheffield United and that didn't seem to be his position. I believe he is best in the middle of the pitch.

"I am a great believer in giving people opportunities and I know how hungry he is.

"He is a bubbly character and wants to play football so we'll see how things go."
