Carrico departs

Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno

Portuguese Europa League winner, Daniel Carrico, has officially cut his ties to Reading FC by agreeing a permanent move to Sevilla.

Carrico joined Reading in January 2013, making his debut in a 45 minute starting berth against West Brom, and was purely utilised as a cameo in that season. This included a short run-out at Fulham and a decent late spell in the Liverpool home draw.

Having been signed for a relatively small six-figure sum, his absence from the first-team was much pondered by Royals fans, and with his lack of fitness emphasised by the club it became apparent he was one of many haphazard signings in that January transfer window that ultimately led to Brian McDermott's sacking, and Reading's relegation.

Since then Daniel has been on loan at Sevilla, picking up a Europa League winners medal in the process, and today Reading have confirmed he has joined the Spaniards permanently, for a rumoured £1.5 million fee.

Sure enough, we seem to have made a profit on him and at a vital time; but Carrico's time at the club will go down as a lasting symbolic legacy of the 2012/13 relegation season- much like that of Greg Halford and Emerse Fae in 07/08.
