‘Very excited about this one’ – Plenty of Reading fans react to transfer link with ex-Nottingham Forest man

Championship outfit Reading are interested in a move for former Nottingham Forest left-back Yuri Ribeiro, as per the Reading Chronicle.

The 24-year-old was released from the City Ground in the summer on the expiration of his contract, but made a respectable 25 Championship appearances last term and was part of a side that conceded just 45 goals in 46 league games during the 2020/21 campaign.

He arrived in the East Midlands in 2019 from Benfica along with former Reading loanee Alfa Semedo in a double deal, with both graduating from the Portuguese side’s academy in their earlier years and Ribeiro opting to make the permanent jump to English football.

Which player scored Reading's first goal of the 2006/07 season?

After becoming a semi-regular player for Forest, making 57 competitive appearances in total during his two-year stint there, his time in England may not be done yet with Reading on the prowl for a first-choice left-back.

Omar Richards’ departure to Bayern Munch earlier in the summer has left teenagers Ethan Bristow and Imari Samuels as the Royals’ only natural full-backs on that side, with Tom McIntyre also filling in there on the odd occasion last season.

However, McIntyre’s natural position is at centre-back and with a risk of injuries to the likes of Liam Moore and Michael Morrison throughout the 2021/22 campaign, he might be required there at some point.

With this latest development at the Select Car Leasing Stadium, we take a look at some of the latest reaction from Reading fans on Twitter ahead of this potential move.
