Royals Complete Yakou Meite Signing

29 July 2016
By Hob Nob Anyone?

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.

Good to see Reading buying young talent from abroad instead of using their good academy players.

Good goal - I remember that. We won.

Leicester and Stoke were rumoured to be interested, and we apparently beat Boro and Palace to his signature.

Love Tev!

Never heard of him, but the little I've looked up since he looks class. A bit Kebe-esque.

PSG offered him a 3 year contract, Palace and Middlesbrough offered him a deal, Leicester supposedly interested and we've beaten them all off. Presumably a combination of being able to offer first team opportunities + Jaap Stam? Appears Tevreden has done us well here on first impression.

On his twitter handle he calls himself "La Brute" and Yakou Meite translates to Frank Marsh... :lol: Yakou "La Brute" Méïte aka Frank "The Bully" Marsh.

Sounds like someone we'd have signed in the 70's/80's

A chant of "FRANK, FRANK, FRANK, FRANK" will do for this guy.

It's as well as, not instead of.
You are confusing us with Chelsea....
