Reading defender Andy Yiadom aims to "take the club where it should be" after signing three year contract extension.

The Ghana international first arrived in 2019 and has gone on to make nearly 150 appearances for the Royals.

Out of contract at the end of June 2022, he signed a long-term extension on Friday, June 17 to keep him at the club until 2025.

The 30-year-old is already a firm fan favourite, particularly for his lung-busting forward runs and wearing his heart on his sleeve.

Currently on international duty with the Black Stars, he shared a message on social media to communicate his delight at penning the new contract.

Writing on Instagram, he said: "The journey continues...delighted to have signed long term with Reading.

"With the fans contribution and the teams determination, let's go together to take the club where it should be."
