Böðvarsson departs for Millwall

Icelander signs permanently for the Lions for undisclosed fee

12 July 2019

Reading Football Club can announce that striker, Jón Daði Böðvarsson, has completed a permanent transfer to join fellow Championship side, Millwall, for an undisclosed fee.

The Icelandic attacker, 27, joined the Royals in the summer of 2017 from newly-promoted Wolves, scoring 10 times in his debut season for the club.

He scored seven more times for Reading in 2018-19 - last finding the net for us in a 2-2 draw at Griffin Park back in September. In total, he made 56 appearances for the club across all competitions.

Having completed his medical earlier today Böðvarsson will now link up with the Lions, who finished a place behind the Royals in last season’s Sky Bet Championship campaign.

We would like to thank Jón for his contribution in blue and white hoops and we wish him the best of luck in his future career.
