Former Lens attacking midfielder Jimmy Kebe is delighted with his move to Reading.

"It is a dream just to get here," said Kebe. "I must pay tribute to my agents, who helped me get this contract. They're a second family to me. They have always believed in me. They were always there, even when it was difficult.

"I've met Steve Coppell and he's already asked me about my English! I'm confident I can learn it quickly.

"Between L1 and the Premiership there is a big gap, so the difference between L2 and the Premiership is unimaginable. But I am ready, everything starts now."
