Reading have confirmed that Mathieu Manset is on his way to FC Sion.

He was the subject of a bid from Crawley Town during the January transfer window before joining Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua on loan in February.

"Manny scored some important goals for us last season, and so played a part in helping us reach the Premier League," Reading's director of football Nicky Hammond told the club's official website.

"However he wants regular first-team football and we can't guarantee that this year; we'd like to wish him the best of luck in his future career."
