Ki-Hyeon must wait as continuity key Coppell

Reading manager Steve Coppell insists he is in no hurry to find a permanent starting spot for record signing Seol Ki-Hyeon.

The South Korea international, who left Wolves earlier in the month in a deal worth a potential £1.5million, can play in a variety of positions.

He can operate on either flank or as a second striker but given that the Royals were so dominant in the Coca-Cola Championship last season Coppell already has trusted men in each of those positions.

Coppell said: 'I have no pre-conceived idea about his best position, I just think he's a good player who will be a healthy addition to our squad.

'The one thing I've learned in management is you can have a wonderful game plan in your mind but it very rarely translates to what is on the pitch. You need options at the level we're going to play at, so I'm grateful to have those.'

So far, Coppell has been able to add just two players to his squad, with Seol having been joined by Brentford defender Sam Sodje, who cost an initial £350,000.

The former Crystal Palace manager is keen to make more signings, with Sunderland midfielder Dean Whitehead understood to be a target.

Coppell and chairman John Madejski have made it clear superstar signings remain out of the club's reach but former England midfielder Neil Webb, who began his career at the club and still lives in the town, was convinced this was for the best.

He said: 'Steve is a very astute manager and he knows that when he brings someone in it is important not to rock the boat because they already have good team spirit among players who work very well together.

'Steve will have to ward against the people who got them up becoming too over-confident and the people he brings in not being able to mix.

'It's a very delicate line but I'm sure Steve will be able to sort it out. He won't do what Bradford did and pay someone an absolute fortune knowing you still might be going down.

'He doesn't have an awful lot of money to spend but I think he will bring in four or five players to stabilise the club in the Premiership. Then, once they are stabilised then they can spend more.

'They have to do the same as Wigan did last season. Wigan are the benchmark for a small club going up.'
