Since the transfer window closed, Reading FC have completed a number of deals for players to leave the club. Catch up on who’s left below.

Tennai Watson

Once the darling of the curious anti-Chris Gunter movement, right-back Watson is off on loan again - this time to Coventry.

The academy grad appears to be below Teddy Howe in Jose Gomes’ pecking order after a middling spell at Wimbledon last season, and returns to League One until January with a more upward looking team.

Jordan Holsgrove

Atletico Baleares is not a team many of us will know of but represents a chance for the Scottish youth international to learn his trade in the Spanish third-tier.

Exactly the sort of standard midfielder Holsgrove will be playing at is hard to say but the Segunda B Group 1 team have won both their games so far this season, the Royals man subbed on in their recent beating of Las Palmas’ reserve side.

Tom Holmes

Another youngster heading abroad, in a European window deadline day, is defender Tom Holmes. Belgian side KSV Roeselare welcome the 19-year-old for the season after he made his Royals debut in March 2018, only to suffer a serious injury shortly after.

Eagled-eyed readers will remember Roeselare are owned by Reading co-owner Dai Xiu Li and have Brian Tevreden for CEO.

Adi Popa

Steaua Bucharest have taken the Romanian winger back as he enters the final year of his Reading contract.

Reportedly, the club are still paying most of his wages, with Popa now the best-paid player in the history of his country’s top-flight!
