According to reports out of Reading, the Royals interest in Powers has cooled

As the Colorado Rapids look to continue rebuilding towards the start of the 2016 season is looks like midfielder Dillon Powers will not be heading to Reading FC according to a report by getreading.co.uk:

Reading have ended their interest in Dillon Powers

Dillon returned to the States earlier this month and at the time there was a suggestion that Royals would look to secure a deal for the 24-year-old.

But getreading.co.uk understands he is now not on the agenda as Brian McDermott looks to strengthen his squad during the transfer window - which opened on Friday.

OK.  So Powers appears to not be going to England--right now.  And you don't know whether this is posturing from the club or not, but this is not a total shock.  Yes, Powers appeared to impress while he was in England, but that was for former manager Steve Clarke.   And since his sacking in December, there was speculation as to whether this could cause a problem for Powers with Reading.

From a Rapids supporters perspective, this is great news.  The Rapids need a player like Powers on the roster as they try and rebuild and the Rapids have added Marco Pappa to the mix, so I wonder what those two would be like together.  And the Rapids have a very thin squad as it is, so a return from Powers would be huge.  The transfer window just opened yesterday, so there is much to be decided on many fronts.  But for now Powers is still a Colorado Rapids player.

Yay!  (I am seriously excited about this)
