Reading FC Loan Report- August 8th

Here we take a look at how the players Reading have loaned out have gotten on in their early season games.

Jasper Juinen

Daniel Carrico- Sevilla (Liga BBVA) Appearances: 1 Goals: 1

Sevilla 3-0 Mladost

Carrico seemed to find his feet on his debut and scored a header in 2nd half injury time to complete a comfortable 1st leg win for Sevilla in Montonegro, as they look to make their way into the final play-offs and subsequently the Champions League group stage. It does feel strange seeing a Reading player be loaned to an established European club challenging to enter the Champions League, but Carrico’s career hasn’t really followed any ‘normal’ paths recently.

Michael Hector- Aberdeen (SPFL Premiership) Appearances: 2 (1 pre-season)

Aberdeen 2-0 FC Twente

Aberdeen 2-1 Kilmarnock

Academy product Hector saw a header crash off the bar from a corner delivered by fellow Reading academy product Jonny Hayes on his debut. He was substituted after 62 minutes, yet did enough for a clean sheet and man of the match award in the friendly versus Twente. Michael has found himself performing well and appeared as a substitute in their opening day victory over Kilmarnock. Aberdeen started the season as 2nd favourites for the newly-rebranded SPFL title, but at 50/1 the bookies consider it more likely that Burnley win the Championship.

Mikkel Andersen- Randers (Danish Superliga) Appearances: 4

Viborg 2-2 Randers

Randers 1-1 OB

Randers 1-2 Rubin Kazan

Kobenhaven 1-3 Randers

2 draws and a win over struggling favourites Copenhagen have given Mikkel Andersen’s team a decent start to the season, with the Dane starting in goal for all 4 games, which included a 2-1 loss to Rubin Kazan in the Europa League 3rd Qualifying Round. The return leg in Russia takes place tonight (Thursday).

Nick Arnold- Wycombe Wanderers (Skybet League Two) Appearances: 1

Wycombe 1-0 Morecambe

Youngster Arnold was restricted to a short cameo off the bench against Morecambe in Wycombe’s opening day 1-0 win, and watched the late League Cup loss to Championship Leicester from the bench.

Ryan Edwards- Perth Glory (Hyundai A-League)

Ryan looks to continue developing this season in his native Australia, with his inclusion in the U-20 world cup squad a promising sign for young player. Like others on this loan report the chances of him making the temporary switch permanent would appear high, especially as the A-league season is played October- April. Pre-season for Edwards begins soon before their first game against Adelaide on October 13th at the nib Stadium.
