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

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

In.

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....

Yann, Joe and Yakou..... at least language won't be an issue...

The 3 musketeers anyone?

Does that make Deniss D'Artagnan?

Fosu's ommission from the squad list makes a lot more sense now.

I know you're not meant to get excited over a new signing just from a short youtube video, but that instagram video has got me very excited about this guy.

CW says it is his first professional contract so I imagine it was a free?

What pleases me in the video was that he seemed to know when to move the ball on too.

Hopefully a good signing, certainly the sit up and take notice one bearing in mind the clubs we supposedly beat off.
