Royals offer trial to Indian youngster
Reading have given a trial to young Indian star Brandon Fernandes, according to the Times of India.
The 18-year old, who is managed by a UK-based company, was on a flight to England today and hopes to complete his medical tomorrow, before embarking on his two-week trial. Fernandes is the only Indian footballer to play for all age-group teams in India and he says he is primarily 'an attacking midfielder with an eye for goal.'
Many speculated during the the week which club he would be going to, but representatives remained tight lipped until now. An unnamed source, reportedly close to Brandon, told the Indian newspaper that: 'Brandon is due to train at Reading FC for two weeks once he passes the medical test on Wednesday. Brandon is looking forward to the test.'
