“My agent mentioned the interest to me; I know Reading from over the years, and it’s a big club with a great history. So I was delighted.
“This league is competitive. When I spoke with the manager about the project that is coming on, I was interested. That’s the main reason why I’m here.
He added, “I’m hoping to get going quickly and I can’t wait to start playing.”
“I want to achieve promotion because this club needs to get back to where it belongs”
