More than 3,000 Reading fans have joined supporter group 'Sell Before We Dai' as the EFL hit the club with yet more offield charges.

Adding insult to the injury of League One relegation, the EFL have hit the Royals with the non-payment of wages and HMRC accounting issues as the club look to enter the third tier under yet more restrictions.

Promising staff members that it would not happen again, fans are less than convinced and the supporters groups, including Supporters Trust at Reading, joined together to create 'Sell Before We Dai.'

Yet to announce any official plans, the group have said they are 'actively trying to find a new buyer for the club' and are 'planning a series of high impact ‘stunts’ throughout pre-season and beyond and working to secure protected status for training ground and stadiums.'

Spokesperson Nick Houlton said: "Despite his best intentions, Mr Dai's stewardship of Reading Football Club has been an unmitigated disaster. His reign has seen excruciating financial losses and a hat-trick of relegations as the academy and both men's and women's teams suffered relegation.

"In spite of this, Reading FC fans remained supportive of Mr Dai, with many seeing relegation as a chance to reset and follow in the footsteps of the likes of Nottingham Forest, Leicester City and Sheffield United in recent years, who all bounced back from third-tier football to enjoy Premier League success.

"However, the latest round of charges and the potential for points deductions for the third season in a row - coupled with the apparent collapse of the hugely popular move to appoint Chris Wilder - has destroyed what little faith remained in the Reading FC owner and CEO Dayong Pang.

"We are now calling for Mr Dai to sell the club at the earliest opportunity and give Reading FC the chance to follow in the footsteps of Forest, Leicester and Sheffield United - rather than KSV Roeselare and Beijing Renhe.

"We know this is an unsettling time for other staff that work at Reading FC, and we are fully with them. Our focus is on seeing Mr Dai and Dayong Pang move on from the club."
