Yakubu Aiyegbeni joins Reading….

Former Portsmouth, Middlesbrough and Nigeria striker Yakubu has joined Championship club Reading on a deal until the end of the season. The 32-year-old, who has not played in England since leaving Blackburn in 2012, was a free agent after playing for Qatari club Al Rayyan. He has a total of 114 league goals across spells at five English clubs. “His addition will complement the strikers we’ve already got at Reading,” said boss Steve Clarke. “I know all about him as a player and I have heard very good reports about him as a personality in the dressing room. “He is no-risk signing for us and I look forward to him scoring goals for Reading Football Club.” In his last season in England with then-Premier League side Blackburn he scored 18 goals in 33 appearances.
