Defender reveals Royals deal is close

Defender reveals Royals deal is close

Reading target Stoppila Sunzu has told the media that he is close to finalising his move to Reading.

The 24-year old flew back to South Africa last week, after spending a few days in Berkshire to train with his potential team mates and complete a contract at the Madejski Stadium. It is now down to Reading and his current club, TP Mazembe, to agree on a fee for the defender.

Sky Sports reported that the Zambian international said: 'Everything went well. I'm happy because I passed the assessment and now it's up to TP Mazembe and Reading to finalise the deal. When they do that, I will sign the contract right here.'

There have been some very interesting quotes from the Zambian coach, who feels Sunzu is 'too good' for us, which I will put up tomorrow. This will leave us with four capable centre backs fighting for the starting spots, despite Stoppila also capable of playing defensive midfield.
