Tomás Lago Pontes Esteves
Date of birth
The Portugal U21 international arrived in Berkshire in October on a season-long loan from Portuguese giants, FC Porto.
Esteves came through the youth ranks with Porto to win the UEFA Youth League in 2019, starting in the same side that beat Chelsea in the final in Switzerland.
Tomás broke into the first team at Estádio do Dragão during the 2019-20 campaign; he made his debut in a Taça da Liga victory last year before earning his Primeira Liga bow in Porto’s draw with Clube Desportivo das Aves in June.
After joining the Royals on a loan stint, his debut came in October 2020 as a substitute in a 1-0 win over near-neighbours Wycombe Wanderers at Madejski Stadium.
