Reading Football Club announced the signing of Scottish striker, Marc McNulty, from Coventry City for an undisclosed fee in July 2018 - becoming the Royals' fourth signing of the summer.

McNulty began his career north of the border, scoring on his professional debut as a 17-year-old substitute in Livingston’s 3-0 win at Montrose in October 2009.

His breakthrough season came in 2011-12, scoring 16 goals across all competitions and in 2014 he was lured south to Sheffield United with a three-year contract at Bramall Lane.

As a Blade, his most notable moment came when he scored the winner in a League Cup quarter-final against Southampton – stabbing past Fraser Forster to send Sheffield United into the last four of the competition for the first time since 2003.

Loan spells at Portsmouth and Bradford City followed before a switch to the Ricoh Arena in May 2017 – and towards the end of a prolific campaign as a Sky Blue his career goal tally reached triple figures.

McNulty’s last competitive match in 2017-18 was at Wembley Stadium. Having bagged in both legs of a Play-Off Semi-Final against Notts County, he went on to win the man of the match accolade in Coventry’s 3-1 Play-Off Final win over Exeter City, earning promotion to League One with the Sky Blues.
