A couple of weeks ago we bought you the news that Andre Bikey may be given the chance to sign for Reading on a permanent basis, Steve Coppell commented that:
‘For 22 years of age he (Bikey) has a very bright future – I hope with us. He is still desperate to prove something.’
This was news we had eagerly anticipated and we still live in hope that at the end of the season we will bring you the news that Andre Bikey has signed a permanent deal with the Royals.
But in the meantime we will have to wait to get the 22-year-old Cameroonian internationals name on the back of our shirts and see if such a deal arises.
Bikey himself has made it clear he would like to remain with Reading or at the very least, stay in England:
‘I want to stay in England,’ Bikey told the Reading Chronicle. ‘Everything is good for me here. My Spanish wife likes it because it’s very much like Spain.
‘But Lokomotiv Moscow are my team. I have two more years left with them, so I’ll wait and see what the gaffer decides.
‘He hasn’t said anything to me yet. If I don’t have any options then I’ll go back to Moscow.’
For the time being Andre and Vital Reading alike will await news of further talks of a full-time contract deal being negotiated.
