First Summer Signing Confirmed As Knibbs Joins

Things are starting to look up at Reading FC after the club confirmed the first signing of the summer transfer window. Forward Harvey Knibbs has today signed a three year contract with the Royals to keep him at the club until the summer of 2026. Knibbs was known to be training with the club and has been expected to sign for a few weeks, and now his transfer has been confirmed shortly after the ELF removed Reading from their embargo reporting. There is no doubt it has been a good week for the club with the final of three charges removed by the Football League after the club settled their tax debts. That followed confirmation that Reading's Academy was back to Level One status.
Reading are now expected to be allowed to pay transfer fees again, but Knibbs arrives on a free transfer as he is out of contract this summer. Twenty four year old Knibbs has spent four seasons at Cambridge United - two in League Two and the following two in League One - after playing at Aston Villa during his youth career. Last season Knibbs made 47 appearances in all competitions and scored five goals.
