PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Reading FC have been linked with a move for Swansea City defender Ryan Bennett ahead of the new season. The centre-back is out of favour with the Swans although he has a year left on his contract at the Liberty Stadium. Royals are reportedly keen on bringing him to the Select Car Leasing Stadium to bolster a defence which was the joint worst in the Championship last year.

Under the current restrictions, they are only permitted to sign free agents or players on loan deals. To get more of an idea about what to expect were Bennett to join, we caught up with Swansea reporter Ian Mitchelmore for the lowdown on the experienced defender. Here is what he had to say. 1) What type of defender would Reading be getting in Ryan Bennett? "He has a very old school, no-nonsense approach to his game and is capable of playing in a back three or in one of the two central positions in a back four. He has experience of playing in the Premier League with Norwich City, Wolves and Leicester City which shows just how impressive he has been over a number of years.

. He's certainly not the quickest of players, although his nous (or knowledge of the dark arts, some may say!) has often got him out of tricky situations."

"This in part answers the previous question, but Russell Martin became unimpressed with Bennett's willingness to fully trust in his methods after he became the club's head coach last summer. Bennett initially played a key role under the current coaching staff but quickly fell behind the likes of Ben Cabango, Joel Latibeaudiere and Ryan Manning in the pecking order. "Swansea underwent a major transition following the departure of Steve Cooper last year, and those who did not fully apply themselves to buying into the new style of play under Martin have gone on to find themselves in the doldrums. Bennett is also thought to be among the club's higher earners, so Swansea are eager to trim their wage bill while also freeing up funds for other signings."

"Bennett has every chance of being a success at Reading given his joy at Championship level in the past. He has stacks of experience, and, at 32, he will feel he still has one more successful move in him yet. Paul Ince has a really tough job on his hands at Reading given the direction of the club, particularly in the last year or so, so players like Bennett can actually play key roles in helping to steady the ship amid such turbulence."
