Sky Bet Championship club – Reading Football Club has announced that midfielder Tom Dele-Bashiru has put pen to paper on a season-long loan move from Watford.

Dele-Bashiru, who will take squad number 19 as a Royal arrived at Bearwood Park, completed his medical and has signed the paperwork to seal the switch which could see him make his debut on Saturday when they meet Preston North End.

Reading manager, Veljko Paunovic told the club’s official website;

“Tom is a very creative, clever, talented young player who adds much-needed strength to our midfield. Importantly as a loanee, he is a player who fits our identity – someone who gives his best, stays positive, overcomes adversity and will never give up. I am really looking forward to working with him and helping him integrate into the squad we are trying to build at Reading.”

While the Chief Executive Dayong Pang added;

“I am delighted to welcome Tom to our club. I am confident we will play a big part in helping him quickly regain full match fitness following injury – and I am also confident that he will play a big part in helping us challenge for points throughout what is sure to be another gruelling Championship season.”

The 21-year-old, born in Manchester, came through the ranks at City and featured alongside Jadon Sancho and Phil Foden in a 4-0 win against the Royals’ Under-18s in the FA Youth Cup in December 2016.
