Former Chelsea chief executive Ron Gourlay has been appointed by Reading in the same role.

The former Blues CEO – who replaced Peter Kenyon in 2009 and worked at Stamford Bridge until 2014- has a long experience in the football business, as he worked also for Manchester United and Umbro.

After signing his new contract for the Royals, he said:

“I look forward to working closely with all the staff who, through their dedication and commitment on a day-to-day basis, strive to make this club successful at every level.

“I am excited to be working alongside manager Jaap Stam and his coaching team, director of football Brian Tevreden and a very promising squad of players ahead of what I am sure will be another exhilarating campaign in the Sky Bet Championship.”
