Kenya international Ayub Timbe is set to complete a loan move to English Championship side Reading FC.
According to BerkshireLive sources, Timbe, 27, alongside 23-year-old Brazilian Felipe Araruna, a free agent, had medicals on Thursday.
“I am having my medical at 5:00 PM (UK time) and if everything goes well I will officially join the club. This is a great club with a huge history. It is also obviously another level here in England and I am happy to start a new challenge and see what comes out of it,” he told Nation.
Timbe plays for the Chinese side Beijing Renhe, owned by Reading’s owner Dai Yongge.
Reading are presently 15th in the Championship log on 37 points, 18 points off leaders Leeds United.
