19-year-old right-back set to spend season at Wycombe
19-year-old right-back Nick Arnold has agreed to sign a contract extension with the Royals and is set to spend next season on loan at Wycombe Wanderers.
The Academy graduate will put pen to paper on a one-year renewal with Reading and is now set to gain valuable experience of competitive first team football in League Two with the Chairboys.
A hard-working full back who is comfortable on the ball and likes to get forward, Arnold graduated from our Academy in the summer of 2011. He had made 28 starts as a regular in his last season with Eamonn Dolan’s under-18s side, to earn his first professional contract with Reading – the team he and his family have supported for years.
He went on to impress in pre-season before a groin injury interrupted his first year as a professional – but once fully fit again he made the step up to reserve team football seamlessly.
And in 2012/13 he was an ever present for our under-21s side, totting up 26 appearances and keeping clean sheets against the likes of Manchester City, Everton, Stoke, Newcastle and Norwich.
Nick is now set to link up with Gareth Ainsworth’s men when the Adams Park outfit return for pre-season training at the end of the month.
