Reading defender Nesta Guinness-Walker believes there is 'no better place' for him to develop his game after his move from AFC Wimbledon.

The 22-year-old left-back has spent the last few weeks on trial with Paul Ince's side before signing a one-year contract on the eve of the opening day of the Championship season.

Starting at Bloomfield Road, the former non-league star was tormented by Tangerines winger Josh Bowler on what was his first second tier appearance.

Speaking to the club media in the days that followed, Guinness-Walker confirmed that he is determined to progress and improve while in Berkshire.

"It’s a big step up for me," he admitted. "Coming into Reading Football Club, but it’s a massive club and I’m looking to relish the challenge and keep improving every day. I’m hungry and eager to learn and improve, and when you look at the experience and quality in the dressing room, it’s a perfect environment for me to develop my game.

"I know I’ve got a lot to improve on in my game, and when you look around the dressing room, just training with them every day you pick up little bits and start improving. The longer I’m in and amongst, it the better it will be for me.

"The gaffer has achieved anything you could wish so there’s no better place for me to be at the moment. I’m loving it and looking forward to the season ahead."

Despite signing last week, manager Ince confirmed on Saturday that he is still on the lookout for another left-back, particularly one with experience.

Speaking to the media in Lancashire, he stated: "The left-backs we're looking at are either on loan or not in contract. You don’t want 10 loan players as you lose the spirit and the core of what we showed today. Financially we can’t do a lot, we’re fishing from the bottom of the pond. Nesta is still young and learning so he’ll grow. We need a left-back, a midfielder and a striker, but maybe I’m being greedy."
