Former long-term Reading target Rodrigo Riquelme has extended his contract with parent club Atletico Madrid and agreed to a loan spell with La Liga side Girona.

The 22-year-old was famously on the brink of a move to the Royals in 2020 but the winger opted to join Championship rivals at the last minute.

The Spanish Under-21 international scored once at Dean Court but had a more successful spell in his homeland last campaign, netting seven times and registering 12 assists for Mirandes in the Segunda Division.

Signing an extension with the Colchoneros until 2028, he is now spending the season in the top tier after Girona were promoted last season.

Owned by the City Group, the same holding company as Manchester City, Melbourne City and New York City, among others, he will now be playing alongside fellow former Championship sides Cristhian Stuani and Samuel Saiz.
