Reading have made an enquiry about Sunderland midfielder David Vaughan and hope to land the out-of-favour Wales international for £1m.
Vaughan has been told he can leave the Stadium of Light if the right offer comes in this summer as he is surplus to requirements following the glut of signings boss Paolo Di Canio has made during the transfer window.
Reading are keen on the midfielder, who has just a year left on his Black Cats' contract and the club are likely to accept an offer if it is forthcoming from the Championship side.
Crystal Palace and Hull City are both believed to be interested in the 30-year-old, who has been pushed further down the pecking order at the club following the arrivals of Cabral and El Hadji Ba.
Vaughan was suspended for Saturday's opening-day defeat against Fulham after picking up a red card on the final day of last season, but was unlikely to be involved anyway as he had barely featured in pre-season under Di Canio.
