Reading FC transfer news sees Canada international midfielder Junior Hoilett become Royals’ second signing of the summer on Thursday afternoon ahead of Saturday’s game at Coventry

Reading have confirmed the signing of former Cardiff City and QPR winger Junior Hoilett.

The 31-year-old has signed a one-year contract at the Select Car Leasing Stadium.

He becomes the second signing of the summer for Veljko Paunovic’s side, following the capture of Watford midfielder Tom Dele-Bashiru on a season-long loan deal last week.

Paunovic said: “Junior is a player with proven pedigree at the highest level, having competed in the Premier League with three different clubs.

“An experienced international, Junior will play an important role in helping our young players integrate within the first team squad and improve as professional players.

“On the pitch, his intelligence and maturity in the final third will make him an excellent addition to the squad we are looking to strengthen.”

Hoilett began his career at Blackburn Rovers before spending four years at QPR between 2012 and 2016.

He then joined Cardiff and played nearly 200 games for the Welsh club before he was released at the end of last season.

The forward has since played in the Gold Cup for Canada over the summer.

He has taken the no.23 shirt at Reading and is eligible to make his Royals debut at Coventry City this Saturday.

Reading chief executive Dayong Pang added: “We are delighted that we have been able to add to our attacking options with the arrival of a player with the vision to create opportunities and the proven ability to score them for Reading Football Club.

“I am excited to welcome him to the club and look forward to seeing him represent the Royals.”
