The Heerenveen player is set to move to the Berkshire club on a two-year deal, after fighting off heavy interest in the player from FC Twente and NEC.
As for the player himself he is a 30-year-old central midfielder who has spent his whole career in the Eredivisie and is known for being a tough tackler.
Some would say the perfect player for new Reading manager Jaap Staam, who was a big tackler himself whilst Den Berg can play attacking midfield as well.
If Reading are going to play a new breed of football they need experienced players who can do it and considering Staam knows Joey Van Den Berg ,we would imagine he fits perfectly into his plans.
Reading are keen to strengthen their midfield especially with reports that Aaron Tshibola may be on his way out to Norwich.
