Kitson leaves Stoke - but who will miss him?

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.

Kitson's fee of £5.5 million must have been made up of several contingency payments dependent upon goals scored (nowt to pay there then!) and Stoke staying up. So, the up front payment was probably closer to half of the £5.5 million quoted. My guess is that if Reading do get promoted and take him back, we'll probably get most of what we have paid for him back. So - we are all Reading supporters until the end of the season! ;)

Hey guys, good luck for the rest of the season. And next in the CL. Nothing to say really, just boosting my posts total.

Mind you, you guys beat us at your ground. Remember going to Stoke a few years ago and we won 5-2 and both teams got relegated. Think it was Kinkladze's last game for us.
