Viveash had been expected to complete a permanent transfer to Oxford United at the end of his loan spell but no deal has taken place so the 31-year-old has returned to train with Reading.

It is well known that Viveash is surplus to Alan Pardew's requirements but it appears he may well be surplus to Oxford's as well.

U's boss Ian Atkins had indicated that he was keen to keep Viveash, however chairman Firoz Kassam is in America no deal can get the go-ahead until he gives it his seal of approval.

Oxford have sold Sam Stockley to Colchester in order to oil the financial wheels of the deal but are yet to press ahead with their plans, leaving Viveash in a state of limbo.

The centre-back admitted to the Evening Post: "I haven’t got a clue what’s happening and I'm now back at Reading. As far as I'm concerned that's the end of it until I hear otherwise.

"We have not even discussed personal terms but things seem to be changing every week there. Hopefully a deal is not dead. It is so frustrating, to be honest, I'm fed up with the whole situation.

"I have been there two months. I didn't really want a second month on loan, and the reason I agreed to it was to get a permanent deal. I've played 15 games and I'm right up to match fitness.

"I need to play games to get me out somewhere. It's as simple as that. I don't feel settled and I find the whole situation very strange."
