Mariappa happy with Reading choice

Former Watford defender Adrian Mariappa is happy with his move to Reading.

He was named the Player of the Year last season and was the subject of a failed £2 million bid from Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew in January.

"When clubs put bids in for you it is always very flattering," Mariappa told the Reading Chronicle. "It shows I must have been doing something right.

"But I continued to keep my head down and focus on my football. Thankfully, that has taken me to where I am today."
