Mutch has found himself well down the pecking order at Palace this season and a number of clubs have expressed an interest in taking him on loan.

The 25-year-old has made just eight appearances so far this season with the midfielder finding his path into the starting XI blocked.

Mutch joined Palace from Queens Park Rangers in January 2015, but has made just 40 appearances during his time at Selhurst Park.

Reading boss Jaap Stam is understood to be a fan of Mutch and sees him as a key addition to his plans as he looks to maintain Reading's unlikely push for promotion to the Premier League.

Reading have been busy in the transfer market this month bringing in Tiago Llori from Liverpool and Romanian winger Adrian Popa from Steaua Bucharest and it seems Mutch is set to become the third new arrival at the Madejski Stadium before the close of the transfer window.

Do you think Mutch is a good signing for Reading?
