Loads of Reading fans have reacted after club icon and former winger Jimmy Kebe sent a tweet joking that he might return to the club.
It was a comment that came at a delicate time for the club’s fans, with many showing enormous discontent with the powers that be after Jose Gomes was sacked to be replaced by sporting director Mark Warburton.
But this has clearly given them a reason to smile.

During his five year stint with the Royals, Kebe racked-up 190 appearances and scored 31 goals, assisting a further 45 as well.
He was a crucial member of the Reading side that won an emphatic promotion to the Premier League during the 2011/12 season, scoring three and assisting 11 in 33 appearances, going on to notch five times in the top-flight as well.
He left in the summer of 2013 for Crystal Palace but had already had a long-lasting impact in Berkshire.
So, here is what the fans had to say after this latest tweet…
