Reading boss Ruben Selles described captain Andy Yiadom as 'the dressing room' after the 32-year-old celebrated his 200th appearance for the club.

The Ghana international returned from the start at Fratton Park in Saturday's 4-1 defeat to Portsmouth after missing Tuesday's draw with Fleetwood Town.

Arriving back in 2018, the skipper lasted 75 minutes before being taken of with Tuesday's match with Port Vale in mind.

Speaking after the defeat, Selles lauded the role of Yiadom in the squad.

"I think Andy IS the dressing room," Selles commented. "His personality, his way of doing things, his calmness, his way to playing football- he IS the dressing room. That is why he is our leader, and all of the others are complimenting him well. It is important for us to keep Andy fit and hopefully, he can play 200 more games and give these kinds of performances."

Yiadom himself added: "It's a privilege, I'm really glad to have made it."

Only four players had made more appearances for the club since Yiadom's move from Barnsley, none of which remain in Berkshire.

Yiadom won the club's Player of the Season award in 2022.
