Loader’s time at Reading
Danny Loader is a product of Reading’s youth system.
The now 19-year-old has racked up 36 appearances for Reading’s under-23 side, in which he scored an impressive 18 goals and assisted five.
Loader has also featured on 29 occasions for Reading’s senior side.
In said games, the striker has scored just one, although, to be fair, a lot of those appearances have come off the bench, including five this campaign.
The Reading man has also earned himself a fair few appearances for England at youth level.
For England’s under-16s, 17s, 18s, 19s and 20s combined, Loader has played 46 times, and found the back of the net on 14 occasions.

Man United linked
Loader is now being linked with a move to Premier League powerhouse Manchester United.
The Mirror reported on Monday that the Red Devils are eyeing a transfer swoop for Loader.
Loader is out of contract in June of 2020, meaning he would cost Man United very little, should they try to pursue him this winter.
Reading manager Mark Bowen has recently spoken about Loader’s contract situation, stating that discussions are ongoing:
“There are ongoing discussions between the club, him, his agent and his family
“He is very happy with his football and yes he wants more game time but he is a great professional, has a smile on his face and works hard. That’s all I can ask for.
“He is a confident lad and has got a talent. At times he will be down but he has to be patient and he will get his chance.” As quoted by the Mirror.
