Reading player linked with transfer move to EFL club

Published

Reading goalkeeper Jokull Andresson has been linked with a loan move to Sky Bet League One side Morecambe this summer, as per a recent report by the Reading Chronicle.

Andresson really impressed whilst on loan at Exeter City last season and could now be set for a loan return to Morecambe, where he played two games last season as part of an emergency move with the Lancashire outfit.

The 19-year-old  also took in a spell with Hungerford Town in non league before making a real career breakthrough with the Grecians last term as he 32 appearances across all competitions for the Devonshire side.

Now it appears that the Shrimps are keen on bringing the shot stopper back to the Mazuma Stadium after being impressed with him previously.

Andresson has seen his path to first team opportunities blocked at Reading by the likes of Rafael and Luke Southwood and now seems set for another temporary spell away from the Madejski Stadium.

The Verdict 

I think this move would make a lot of sense from a Reading perspective, as realistically speaking, the teenager is unlikely to get much in the way of game time next season.

He performed brilliantly during his time with Exeter and will only improve as a player if he is given further first team football in the upcoming campaign.

Morecambe are a club that are on a real high after achieving what was a very unlikely promotion and I think he will settle in well there.

The Icelandic youth international is one of many talented young keepers that the Royals have on their books at present, with the club also having big hopes for Coniah Boyce-Clarke, who made his debut for the under-23 side at the age of just 15.

Reading will certainly be in safe hands between the sticks if they can keep these young talents in the long term.
