YORK are in talks to sign released Sunderland youngster Adam Reed.
The midfielder spent the final month of last season on loan with the Minstermen after being told his Sunderland contract would not be renewed.
And York boss Nigel Worthington admits he is in talks with Reed’s representatives, to agree a financial package with the 22-year-old.
“His agent has rang me and he knows I like the lad,” said Worthington.
“He has obviously been on a certain level of wages at Sunderland but there has to be a sense of realism in that respect and, if that’s the case, then I will put the ball in their court.
“I am hoping they come back with something sensible and reasonable and his agent has told me he thinks it would good for the boy because he enjoyed his time with us and he feels he could learn a lot working under myself, which was nice to hear.”
