'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Sigurdsson completes Hoffenheim move

The Royals confirmed on Tuesday morning what we all knew already, Gylfi Sigurdsson has joined Hoffenheim. The Icelandic midfielder has penned a four year deal with the Bundesliga club.


We have received a 'club record fee' which means it is more than the £6.5 million we got for Kevin Doyle in the summer of 2009.


Chairman Sir John Madejski told the Official Site, 'This move is right for Reading Football Club. I understand some supporters would prefer Gylfi to stay but he is a fantastic young player who is bound to attract interest at the highest level.'


Brian McDermott chose to concentrate on the player himself, rather than feed the fans more bullshit.


'I spoke to Gylfi and his father, who is a real friend of this football club, and a few tears were shed. Gylfi is a fantastic player, and a fantastic person a real credit to his family. I look forward to seeing his progression throughout the years.'


Everyone at Vital Reading would like to wish Gylfi Sigurdsson the best, he has basically carried this football team for a year, so deserves all the credit he gets. We await with baited breath for any replacement's that might come in.
