English Championship side Reading FC has confirmed the capture of Kenyan international Ayub Timbe from Chinese Super League side Beijing Renhe on a loan deal until the end of the season.
While confirming Timbe’s capture, the club noted: “Reading Football Club are pleased to announce that winger Ayub Masika has agreed to join the Royals on loan from Beijing Renhe until the end of the season.
“Masika has been trialling with Mark Bowen’s first team on the Hogwood Park pitches in recent weeks and has impressed to earn a loan move to RG2 which will end in June 2020.”
On his part, Reading manager Mark Bowen said: “Masika is a precocious talent with real speed that means he can hurt the opposition in good areas of the field. We’ve had a look at him in training over recent weeks and he’s shown good qualities.
“He’s catching up on his fitness a little bit with the Chinese league being out of season at the moment, but I think he can be a real asset to us and I’m delighted to have him here.”
Timbe started his footballing career at Anderlecht from the age of 13 and continued his footballing education in the youth ranks of Beerschot AC before signing professional terms at Genk in 2010.
With less game time at Genk, the winger moved to Lierse in 2014 on a loan deal before making it permanent two years later. He was to join Beijing Renhe in 2017 and had a loan deal with Heilongjiang FC in China too.
