Southampton Winger Sims Arrives On Season Loan

Southampton winger Joshua Sims has joined the Royals on a season long loan. Twenty one year old Sims made his Southampton Premier League debut as a 19 year old in November 2016, starting in a 1-0 victory over Everton and has gone on to make 13 appearances in the Premier League for the Saints over the last two seasons. After being restricted to most of those games as late showings from the bench, and only making 7 appearances in all competitions last season, Southampton are keen to give Sims more experience this season.
Reading manager Paul Clement describes Sims as "a talented young player that can play on either side, he is a hard worker with a lot of ability and potential, and I'm delighted that he's joining us at Reading." With Reading's lack of success so far this season in the league Clement will be hoping Sims can make an immediate impact and is highly likely to go straight into the team. Sims will be available for selection as Reading travel to Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday evening looking for their first points of the season.
