Ayub Timbe completes loan deal to Reading FC

Harambee Stars winger Ayub Timbe has joined English Championship side Reading FC on loan for the remainder of the season from Beijing Renhe.

Timbe has been a long transfer target for the Championship side after being linked with a move in the January transfer window last year but the deal fell through.

The former Genk midfielder suffered relegation last season with Chinese outfit Beijing Renhe after finishing bottom of the standings with Timbe netting two goals.

In an interview with Daily Nation, Timbe was delighted with the move, "I am having my medical at 5pm (UK time) and if everything goes well I will officially join the club.

"This is a great club with a huge history. It is also obviously another level here in England and I am happy to start a new challenge and see what comes out of it."

Timbe is not the only new face set to join Reading as Araruna is expected to sign a two and half year deal as he joins on a free transfer from Sao Paulo.
