The Royals will continue to monitor defender Stoppila Sunzu after he spent four days training with the club last week.
The 24-year-old is now back with the Zambian national team for their African Cup of Nations campaign, and Director of Football Nick Hammond was pleased to have Sunzu on board.
Nick said, “We had a very good week with him here, we had been trying to bring him across since the summer and this was the first opportunity we had. He was here as a young boy a few years ago so it was great to see him again.
“We’re very grateful to his club TP Mazembe for allowing him to train with us, they have been a pleasure to deal with throughout the entire process. Of course the same also goes for the Zambian FA who were also very gracious in allowing him to train with us so close to the start of the Cup of Nations.
“Now of course his focus will be fully on the tournament and doing well for his country, so we will continue to monitor his performances and will continue our dialogue with TP Mazembe.”
