Reuters , Wednesday 18 Jan 2017

Defender Tiago Ilori has joined Reading from Liverpool on a three-and-a-half year contract for an undisclosed fee, the Championship side said in a statement on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old Portugal youth international joined Liverpool from Sporting Lisbon in 2013 and made three senior appearances for the Premier League club.

"Tiago is the type of defender a lot of people like - his technical skill, passing ability, pace, quality and physique. We always want players with those attributes within our squad," Reading manager Jaap Stam told the club website.
