Kitson leaves Stoke - but who will miss him?
Dave Kitson has rejoined Reading on loan until the end of the season.
It's looks like the end of the Stoke striker's short career at the Brit. He was signed for £5.5m in the summer but failed to perform and has never scored in 18 appearances. He was then completely overshadowed by the huge impact made by James Beattie, who only joined in January and has already notched up five goals in just seven appearances.
He has rejoined the Royals for what is reported to be 'a sizeable loan amount' with an option for the Royals to resign him in the summer if they get promotion. Whether we will be able to recoup anywhere close to the £5.5m remains to be seen.
