    • Johnnie Jackson is named new manager of AFC Wimbledon

    Reading have appointed Paul Ince as their permanent manager following a successful interim spell in charge during which he led the Royals to Championship safety.

    Ince took over from Veljko Paunovic in February, winning four and drawing three of his first 11 games in charge. Reading’s upturn in form allowed the side to secure survival with three games remaining, despite incurring a six-point deduction in November for breaching EFL financial rules.

    • Bournemouth leveller puts Fulham’s title party on hold

    Peterborough’s relegation to League One was confirmed as Sam Surridge scored the only goal in their 1-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest – a result that saved Reading from the drop.

    Peterborough had looked threatening early on as they battled for survival, with Josh Knight and Ricky-Jade Jones both going close, but Forest gradually took control. The victory all but secured Forest’s place in the Championship’s top six, and kept Reading in the division, despite their 3-0 defeat at Hull.

    Bournemouth gave further hope to the Championship’s chasing pack after failing to win for a third successive match, with a 0-0 draw at home to Middlesbrough.

    Scott Parker’s side failed to break down play-off chasing Boro but remain four points clear of third-placed Huddersfield, with two games in hand, after the Terriers were held to a 2-2 draw by QPR. Huddersfield led twice, first through an early Yoann Barbet own goal and Harry Toffolo’s second-half strike, but Rangers twice fought back through Luke Amos and Ilias Chair to end their five-game losing streak.

    Fulham missed the chance to move further clear at the top of the Championship table after they were beaten 1-0 at West Brom, though second-placed Bournemouth were unable to take full advantage.

    The hosts at the Hawthorns went close in the first half when Karlan Grant’s effort was pushed on to the post by Marek Rodak before Callum Robinson finally made the breakthrough just after the hour.

    Nottingham Forest made sure it is not only Liverpool they have in their sights, in next Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final, but also the Championship’s play-off places as Keinan Davis’s two goals took them within two points of the top six.

    The striker, on loan from Aston Villa, set Forest on their way by scoring after 17 seconds, with their quickest league goal since Jack Lester in 2020, and effectively sealed Reading’s third successive defeat with another midway through the second half. Ryan Yates and Sam Surridge embellished what Paul Ince called an “embarrassing” capitulation.

Reading Transfers

The Latest Reading FC Transfer News for 2021- 2022

Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below:

Newly promoted Reading have been scouting out many possible additions to their squad for next season with manager Brian McDermott having a large number of possible targets he wishes to bring to the Madjeski for the season kick off in August. The Royals manager has stated he would like to reinforce in all departments for next season with a mixture of new and experienced players.

Reading have just offered a contract to up and coming high flying goal keeper Stuart Taylor after the player
enjoyed a successful trial spell at the club in recent weeks. The Royals have been looking for a long term replacement in the goal keeping department for some time and look set to make Taylor the man to do the job as long as the club and the player can agree personal terms before the season kicks off.

Goal keeper Mikkel Anderson looks like he will be heading in the other direction to Portsmouth this summer after the club decided they wished to sign Taylor to replace him and Pompey manager Appleton is extremely keen on the young goal keeper. The southern club have offered to take the player on loan for the season but Reading seem coy on this idea as they would much prefer to dispense with his services on a permanent deal but as of yet both clubs are unable to reach an agreement on the situation so the drama continues.

Young Watford starlet Adrian Mariappa is the first signing of the summer for the Royals as he has just arrived on a three year deal from the London club. The talented Jamaican international central defender is a great addition to the Royals squad and McDermott believes the player will offer them a new dimension in the heart of their defence for next season.

Another player who looks all set to arrive at the Madjeski this summer is Nottingham Forest full back Chris Gunter who has been a long term target of the club for some time. The Welsh international has been out of favour at Forest for the better part of last season and now is keen and excited to the prospect of life in the premier league and the deal looks all set to go through within the next couple of weeks as long as the player agrees personal terms and passes the clubs medical.

In recent weeks there has been growing speculation that the Royals have been enquiring about gaining the services of Jermain Defoe from Tottenham after the striker endured a bit part season last year for his home club. Defoes chances in the first team were extremely limited and now the striker may look elsewhere to ply his trade if talks with the club break down this summer which will leave the door right open for the Royals to bring the player to the Madjeski.
