YANN IS SIGNED BY ROYAL APPROVAL
READING have secured the signature of a proven Championship goal scorer in Yann Kermorgant.
The 34-year-old Frenchman netted 17 times last season as Bournemouth secured promotion to the Premier League, forming a lethal partnership with Callum Wilson.
But opportunities have been limited this season with the Cherries and Reading manager Brian McDermott has capitalised on the opportunity.
Kermorgant has signed a deal that will keep him at the Madejski Stadium until 2017 and McDermott revealed his delight at the deal.
“I’m delighted to get Yann, a player we have known about for a long time,” said the manager.
“In Yann we have an experienced striker with an excellent record and a player who will be able to work with our young players and be a good centre forward in the team we are trying to develop here. I am really looking forward to working with him.”
Royals chief executive Nigel Howe added:“We are delighted to have signed Yann. He brings both a wealth of experience and an impressive goalscoring record.”
