Aluko completes move to Reading


Nigeria international Sone Aluko has signed with English Championship side Reading FC for the next four years.

Reading FC confirmed the signing of the 28-year-old winger from Fulham on Wednesday.

“Now the deal is over the line, Sone Aluko is looking forward to the business of playing football,” Reading FC announced via their Twitter account.

The selling club Fulham also stated that “Aluko has joined Reading for an undisclosed fee.”

However business for the player was concluded for a reported fee of around £7.5 million.

Aluko now becomes the seventh player to be hooked by Reading boss Jaap Stam in this summer transfer window.

Stam is excited with his new acquisition and recognises Aluko’s attacking qualities.

“In Sone, we welcome a quality player into our squad. With his pace and ability on the ball, he can make life difficult for every opponent we face this season and he has experience of playing at the level we want to play at.

“He poses a threat going forward, he keeps the ball well, he can play as a striker or out on the wing and I am sure he will improve us as a squad. So I’m very happy that he has chosen to join us,” Stam, a former Dutch international told Reading’s website.

Aluko made four appearances for Fulham this season before he completed the move to The Royals.
