Reading FC are set to appoint Marko Mitrović as the new assistant manager. 

The Reading Chronicle understands that the 42-year-old will reunite with manager Veljko Paunović, having previously worked alongside the new boss at Chicago Fire between 2016-2019.

It is also understood that Quinton Fortune will be at the Carabao Cup clash with Colchester United and is expected to sign a deal to join the coaching staff at the club ahead of the new season. 

Reading remain on the lookout for new coaching staff members, with at least one further addition expected in the coming weeks.
