Reading right-back makes season-long loan switch to AFC Wimbledon


AFC Wimbledon have signed Tennai Watson on a season-long loan deal.

The Reading right-back, 21, will spend the 2018-19 campaign with the South London outfit.

Dons manager Neal Ardley told the club’s website: “Tennai is very athletic, very quick, and a good one versus one defender.

“He loves to get forward and make things happen and he fits the criteria of everything that we want. He is a great lad with a fantastic attitude, that has come from everybody we’ve spoken to.

“Tennai is a good size and he is a powerful athlete. We have to get him up to speed because he had a tough time last season, but he is fit and well, he played 45 minutes the other day for Reading under-23s against Bath.”
