Today Championship side Reading unveiled Tiago Ilori as a new signing in a deal believed to be worth around £3.75 million. The Portuguese centre back was unveiled today as a Reading player, having finalised his move to the Madejski, signing a contract that will see him don the white and blue of the Royals until 2020.

Reading boss Jaap Stam was full of praise for the 23-year-old, saying “Tiago is the type of defender a lot of people like – his technical skill, passing ability, pace, quality and physique. We always want players with those attributes within our squad.”Although Iliori was never afforded the chance to make an impact at Anfield, we wish him the best as he moves on to this new endeavour with another club.
