Reading have completed the signing of young French player Yakou Meite from Paris Saint-Germain. Meite continues Reading's import of European players and signs on a three year contract. At just 20 years old he makes sure that Reading retain a very young first team squad ahead of the new Championship season.
Born in Paris, Meite has been at PSG since he was 13 and has worked through the academy there before making a single late first team appearance in stoppage time in April. With first team opportunities limited at PSG he has made the move to England and will take squad number 19 with the Royals. His parents are from the Ivory Coast and he has featured for the U17s (scoring 1 goal in 5 appearances) and U20s (4 appearances) for his parents home country. He is primarily a left winger.
