Young Royals striker Gozie Ugwu has confirmed that he has left the club, with his contract up this summer. However, it's unclear if a deal was offered to him by Reading. Ugwu, 21, has impressed for the Royals youth sides in recent years, but has been unable to do the same on loan at lower league clubs like Yeovil Town, Plymouth Argyle and Shrewbury Town.

He posted on his Twitter page:

This follows the news several days ago that youngsters Nick Arnold and Lawson D'Ath had taken to Twitter to inform loyal Royals that they'll be spending their summer searching for new clubs.

Nick Arnold is 23 and spent the season out on loan at League Two side Wycombe Wonderers, chalking up a total of 33 appearances in all competitions, laying on two assists and collecting five yellow cards during his first full season of professional, first-team football.

He posted on his Twitter page:

After discussions with Reading I will not be renewing my deal there just would like to thank everyone associated with the club for an amazing 7 years there as they've given me my starting block to go on and I hope them all the best for the future.

Lawson D'Ath is 21 and has spent part of the season out on loan at Dagenham & Red, making 21 appearances, scoring one goal and creating one as well. He has previously spent time on loan at Yeovil, Cheltenham and Exeter City.

He posted on his Twitter:

Thanks to the lads for their loyalty to the club, and we here at The Tilehurst End wish them the very best for their future.
