Wycombe Wanderers legend Joe Jacobson has been lined up for a senior boardroom role at Reading under potential new owner, Rob Couhig.

Jacobson made 400 appearances for the Chairboys at left-back in a decade at Adams Park, retiring from the game over the summer.

He struck up a close bond with former Chairboys owner Couhig, who is now closing in on a deal to takeover at Reading.

First reported by Anthony Smith, formerly of the Reading Chronicle, it is believed that the Welshman will takeover from Dayong Pang as the club's Chief Executive Officer.

It would be his first role since hanging up his boots.

The Telegraph reported that the deal to take the club out of the hands of Dai Yongge could be completed within a fortnight, with the 75-year-old having been in negotiations for months.

Both Couhig and Jacobson have made multiple visits to Bearwood training complex and the SCL Stadium this week as the process nears a conclusion.

There are just four weeks until the start of the 2024/25 League One season, with Birmingham City hosting the Royals on August 10.
