SHAUN Cummings is having a medical at Millwall today.

The right back from Reading is poised to become the Lions' fourth signing of the January transfer window after agreeing terms on a two-and-a-half-year contract.

Cummings is currently at Millwall's training ground and the club hope to complete the transfer later on Monday.

The 25-year-old, who has represented Jamaica at international level, was the Royals' first-choice right back when they won the Championship in 2012.

But after the Royals were promoted to the Premier League, they splashed £2.5m on Welshman Chris Gunter and Cummings' opportunities since then have been limited.

The former Chelsea trainee has been highly recommended to Ian Holloway by first team coach Nigel Gibbs, who was Reading's assistant during their title triumph.

Cummings featured six times for Reading during the first month of this season before a knee injury sidelined him for over two months.

But he's been back in training since mid-November and has been a regular on the bench in recent weeks, playing in a 2-2 draw with Brighton on Boxing Day.

    Perhaps we can play him in midfield. I mean we haven't got enough midfielders at the moment !!
