Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) target Michael Olise has been urged to snub big clubs and stay put at Reading FC by English legend Kevin Phillips.

Reading midfielder Michael Olise has been named in the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) Team of the Year.

Olise scored seven goals in 44 league appearances for the Royals in the 2020/21 season.

The 19-year-old was recognised for his superlative displays for Reading despite the club’s failure to secure promotion at the end of the campaign.

Reading finished in seventh position failing to make promotion playoffs.

Norwich City dominated the list with six members of Daniel Farke’s title-winning side included along with Brentford’s Ivan Toney.
