Mutch: “There are big things to come from this club”

Jordon Mutch talks over signing for the Royals and an exciting new opportunity...

New signing Jordon Mutch can’t wait to get going for the Royals and is looking forward to playing under manager Jaap Stam and taking part in the project the Dutchman is building in Berkshire.

The midfielder, who joins on loan until the end of the season, is looking forward to contributing to what he believes can be a big season for Reading.  

“I’m really looking forward to getting started and having the opportunity to play under the gaffer here,” said Mutch. “The boys are really doing a good job so far and it’s is an exciting next step for me.

“I spoke to Brian Tevreden a few times before I came here, and the philosophy the manager is putting across and the style of football, it’s is exciting stuff.

“You can see it in the way the team have been playing so far this season,” he continued. “I think there are big things to come from this club and I’m really excited to be joining it.”

After signing on deadline day, Mutch was not available for that evening’s win against his boyhood club Birmingham City, but the former Crystal Palace and Cardiff man will be available for Saturday’s trip to Ipswich and is raring to get started.

“The style of play suits me so hopefully I can fit in and help the team,” said Mutch. “We’re sitting in a good position right now, with a lot of games to go so it is exciting to come in at this stage and I can’t wait to get my teeth stuck into it.

“I’m an attacking player, who likes to assist and I like to get goals. I’m a box-to-box midfielder so hopefully I can slot in quickly and get a few goals for the team.

“I think it makes the team better when there is competition for places,” continued the 25-year-old. “It will only make the team stronger going into the second half of the season. I’m looking forward to Saturday and I really can’t wait to get going.

“In the Championship it is very busy, with a lot of Saturday-Tuesday games. Hopefully we can push on and achieve good things this year.”
