Danish goalkeeper Mikkel Andersen has ended an eight-year association with Reading Football Club to return to his native roots to sign for FC Midtjylland, Get Reading are reporting.
The 26-year-old has put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal with the club, who are currently the champions of Denmark following their league success of last season.
Andersen returns to his homeland on a free transfer after his contract with the Berkshire-based club came to an end.
Despite eight years with the club, he never established himself as a first-team regular at the Madejski Stadium and started just three games during his time with the club.
Andersen experienced first-team football during loan spells with Torquay United, Rushden and Diamonds, Brentford, Brighton and Hove Albion and Portsmouth during his time on the books at Reading.
The 26-year-old who has been capped three times for the Danish Under-21’s team, turned down a new deal with Steve Clarke’s men to make the move back home.
Reading are, according to boss Clarke, in the market for more than one keeper this summer having already seen first-choice stopper Adam Federici leave to join Bournemouth.
