Reading swoop for Bees defender Sodje

Reading have had a 350,000 bid for Brentford defender Sam Sodje accepted.

The fee could eventually rise to 500,000, depending on appearances, for the 27-year-old centre-back, who will join the Premiership newcomers if he passes a medical and agrees personal terms.

Sodje, a Nigerian international, made 100 appearances for Brentford after joining from non-league Margate two years ago. He was a key figure in the Bees team that reached the League One play-off semi-finals in each of the last two seasons.

Meanwhile South Korea international Seol Ki-Hyeon is convinced the Royals are 'going places' after joining from Wolves.

The 27-year-old winger or striker has signed a three-year deal after a fee that could rise to 1.5million depending on appearances was agreed with the Championship club.

Seol was unveiled by his new club this morning, and he said: 'I am very excited about this move. Reading had a great season last year and they are a club going places.

'I have no doubt this is the right move for me.'
