Reading have signed Yakubu Aiyegbeni from Qatari side, Al Rayyan.
Yakubu, who has played for a number of Premier League sides including Middlesbrough and Everton, will join Reading’s quest for a Premier League ticket.
“It feels good to be back in England and it feels good to play for Reading Football Club,” Aiyegbeni told Reading FC Player.
“I’m so happy to be here. I’ve been training so hard in Qatar and I’m feeling fit, I’m just ready to go. After two and a half years away from England I’m back again – English football is some of the best in the world, both the Premier League and the Championship.
“ I have played in this league twice – with Leicester and Portsmouth and I want to try to help the team. I just need to get on the pitch and give it my best, hopefully I can score more goals and help the team.”
