25 July 2018

Reading Football Club can announce that 32-year-old midfielder Joey van den Berg has completed season-long loan paperwork which will see him return to his native Netherlands to play for NEC Nijmegen in 2018-19.

Van den Berg joined the club on a free transfer at the end of June 2016 and he went on to make 63(+5) appearances during his first two seasons as a Royal.

The former Heerenveen and PEC Zwolle midfielder scored two goals during that time – against Plymouth Argyle in the Carabao Cup and a long-range effort at home to Barnsley last year.
