Bikey Offered Royal Trial
Reading FC have offered the out of favour Lokomotiv Moscow defender, Andre Bikey a trial period at the Madejski Stadium. The period is set to last the duration of Reading`s summer tour of Sweden, after which it is expected negotiations on his contract will begin or he will return to his Russian club.
The 21 year old, Cameroon international is set to make his debut tonight against amateur team, Gallastad FK.
'Bikey is just one of many centre-backs we are looking at,' manager Steve Coppell said, speaking to the Reading Evening Post.
The central defender played a key role in the Cameroon squad that reached the Quarter Finals of the African Cup of Nations earlier this year.
