Ipswich Town taking a look at Reading defender
Ipswich Town have brought Reading defender Gabriel Osho in on trial.
The 21-year-old played for the Tractor Boys’ Under-23’s side last night against Coventry City, as per a report by TWTD.
Osho is out-of-contract at the Madejski Stadium next summer so may be weighing up his options for his next move.
He joined the Royals as a youngster and rose up through their youth ranks. The centre-back signed his first professional contract in July 2016.
Osho made his senior debut in a Championship fixture against Middlesbrough in September 2018, a game in which he was awarded the Man of the Match award. He has since made three more appearances for Reading.
He was loaned out to non-league side Maidenhead United for a brief spell in the 2017/18 before joining National League outfit Aldershot Town the season after, where he played 11 times in all competitions.
Osho then spent the second-half of last term on loan in League One at Bristol Rovers.
His long-term future at Reading depends on whether he part of their new manager Mark Bowen’s plans. He hasn’t played for them so far this season, hence why he has been allowed to join Ipswich on a temporary basis.
Osho has gained some senior experience from his loan spells away from Reading and could be a useful signing for Ipswich if they choose to snap him up. He would add more options and depth to Paul Lambert’s promotion chasing side.
