Former Reading captain Chris Gunter is set to join the Wales coaching staff- just weeks after announcing his retirement.

The AFC Wimbledon defender became Wales' first centurion in 2021, and retired with 109 caps earlier this month.

Having completed his UEFA B and UEFA A licenses, the Sun are reporting that the full-back will miss Wimbledon's next two matches as Wales face UEFA Euro 2024 qualifiers with Croatia and Latvia.

Leaving Reading in 2020, after eight years and more than 300 appearances, the 33-year-old has dropped through the pyramid to become a regular at first Charlton Athletic and now the Dons.

The Welshman was ever-dependable during his time in Berkshire, enjoying three successive seasons of over 50 appearances each.

Appearing at one World Cup and two European Championships, and with over 600 Football League appearances, Gunter has a wealth of experience to rely on.

The former Cardiff City, Nottingham Forest and Tottenham Hotspur full-back, along with Gareth Bale and Jonny Williams, announced his retirement in March 2023.
