Reading sign Kenya star Masika

Aidan Shearer by Aidan Shearer @besoccer_es - 0 381

Reading have signed Kenyan winger Ayub Masika from Beijing Renhe on loan until the end of the season.

The 27-year-old arrives in England after having a spell in China. He played 12 times for Beijing Renhe this season, scoring 2 goals and getting 1 assist. He also played in the African Cup of Nations, netting once.

In 2018 he played for Beijing, as well as having a brief spell at Heilongjiang Lava Spring, and in previous years with Lierse SK and Genk in Belgium.

He has also got 15 caps for his country, scoring 4 goals. He made his debut in 2012 against South Africa.

"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", Royals manager Mark Bowen said.
