ILORI DEAL ‘GOOD FOR READ­ING’

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

READ­ING cen­tre-back Liam Moore be­lieves the im­mi­nent sign­ing of fel­low de­fender Ti­ago Ilori from Liver­pool is a strong sig­nal of in­tent.

Ilori’s move from the Reds for around £3.75mil­lion was being fi­nalised be­fore the week­end, and Moore is con­vinced the 23year-old will be a hit.

“It’s good to see us strength­en­ing at this stage of the sea­son,” said Moore, also 23. “We have a rel­a­tively small squad and we’re in a good po­si­tion in the league.

“We need to try and kick on from that. Ti­ago is an ex­cel­lent de­fender and the move is def­i­nitely some­thing that is good for the team. Adding more depth to the squad can only be good.”
