Reading's new full-time manager Paul Ince is "pleased to be back" after agreeing a new deal.

Arriving in February as interim-manager, the former England and Manchester United midfielder agreed terms on Monday to take over on a permanent basis ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

Alongside assistant manager Alex Rae and Head of Football Operations Mark Bowen, the club have seemingly had a re-shuffle behind the scenes as they look to maintain Championship status despite under challenging EFL regulations.

Speaking to the club media team after signing on the dotted line, Ince said: "I’m pleased to be back and it feels great to be part of this fantastic football club. And it is a fantastic football club.

"In the couple of months I’ve been here, I’ve seen things that need to change and we’re now going to start changing them. Firstly, we need to try to get some players signed up and some new players in.

"It's good that we’re in a position where we can actually build a team. If we can get the structure right and get some stability at this club - and with the fans behind us, which they have been ever since I came into the club – we can give ourselves a fighting chance of achieving what we want to.

"I’m glad I’ve signed and now I’m ready to get to work.”
