Completion of Reading takeover delayed

The deal to complete the takeover of Championship Reading has been delayed. Russian tycoon Anton Zingarevich bought 51% of the club 16 months ago and was due to buy the remaining 49% from previous owner Sir John Madejski by the end of September, but that deadline has now past.

The club stated that both parties are "comfortable extending the deadline to finish the deal" but could not specify whether they would set a new completion date.
