Manager speaks on goalkeeper arrival

Royals boss Steve Clarke says the Royals have signed a goalkeeper with great potential in Jonathan Bond.

Bond has signed a three-year deal at Madejski Stadium, and becomes our fourth signing of the week.

Clarke told readingfc.co.uk, "I’m delighted that we have managed to secure the signature of one of English football's brightest young goalkeepers.

"Jonathan is at the stage of his career where he needs a new challenge and the opportunity to establish himself as first choice goalkeeper.

"He has all the attributes needed to reach the very top and, with the help of Dave Beasant, it is our aim to get him there.

"With Jonathan joining Stuart Moore in our ranks we believe that our goalkeeping department is starting to look very strong again.

"It is my intention to bring one more experienced goalkeeper to the club to complement the young talent that we now have."
