"The Royals will continue to operate in the transfer market over the coming weeks," read a statement on the club's official website.
"On deadline day and this morning the Royals held talks with vastly experienced midfielder Momo Sissoko, and talks with him may continue in the future as he is out of contract."
They have already been busy in the market though, adding three new players to their squad, as they adjust to life after Premier League relegation, in the shape of Wayne Bridge, Daniel Williams and Royston Drenthe.
The mix-up has generally proved successful for Adkins' team too, as they have lost just one of their league games so far, beating Yeovil Town 1-0 and drawing 3-3 with Watford in the others.
Cardiff City have also been linked with a move for the Malian, with top-flight football on offer, while Everton have also been mooted as a possible destination.
