Jaap Stam will be looking to make additions to his Reading squad this summer to ensure that they go one step further next season and achieve promotion to the Premier League.
The Royals, who lost in the play-off final at Wembley Stadium to Huddersfield Town, via penalty kicks, as the game ended goalless after 120 minutes had been played.
Following that commitment, he and the club’s new owners can plan for the summer transfer window ahead and look to bring in the correct personnel to take the club to the next level.
Reading had no problem in attack this year scoring 68 goals, though struggled at the other end of the pitch where they conceded 64, the highest in the top 6. This will be something that Stam will be looking to put right next season.
With that in mind, Reading should look to sure up their defence, with Plymouth Argyle centre-half, Sonny Bradley.
Having started his career at Hull City, Bradley, spent time out on loan to gain first team experience at Aldershot Town, before making the switch to Portsmouth in the 2013/2014 season.
Lasting just one season with Pompey, he made the switch to play for Crawley Town before in 2016 he made the move to Plymouth Argyle.
After cementing his place at centre-half in the Argyle starting eleven, Bradley, help the Pilgrims to promotion this campaign from League Two and also was named in the League Two team of the year squad.
Making the Team of the Year has backed up his excellent form this year, as he helped Plymouth not only to promotion but they only conceded 46 goals along the way.
That total was the league’s third best defensive record and also he chipped in with 7 goals and 4 assists in all competitions, good going for a defender.
It’s clear to see that Bradley is not only solid at the back, but can also help his team’s cause by chipping in with a few goals. would be a quality
Would surely be a quality signing, if Jaap Stam decided to purchase him this summer.
