Coppell opens door for Sidwell Royal return

Reading manager Steve Coppell has indicated he could try to bring midfielder Steve Sidwell back to the club on loan when the transfer window reopens in January. Jose Mourinho took the 24-year-old to Chelsea in the summer on a free transfer, but the Portuguese has now been replaced by Avram Grant and Sidwell was not in the 16-man squad at Manchester United yesterday. Coppell said: 'I would fully anticipate that we will supplement the squad in January. 'I want good players and Siddy is a good player. He's one of many I would love to bring here.' The former Arsenal youth team star who joined Chelsea saying he knew it would be tough to break into the first team with all their stars, has made just two starts - one against Reading - and one substitute appearance for the Blues. And Coppell told the Reading Evening Post: 'It's ironic that he is not getting a game there when we very much wanted him to have games here.' Sidwell turned down what was described as the best new contract offer ever made to a Reading player to join the Blues and cited Mourinho as one of the biggest reasons for his decision.
