Yann Kermorgant completes move from AFC Bournemouth to Reading

Posted: Wed 20 Jan 2016

Striker Yann Kermorgant has completed a move from AFC Bournemouth to Reading, for an undisclosed fee.

The 34-year-old front man has put pen to paper on an 18-month-deal with the Royals, bringing his two year spell on the south coast to an end.

Kermorgant signed for the Cherries in January 2014, and announced himself in style bagging a hat-trick in the 5-0 win over Doncaster Rovers.

The likeable frenchman soon became a firm fans’ favourite, and scored 15 goals in the Championship winning season as he formed a formidable partnership with Callum Wilson.

His appearances have been limited this term, but he did find the back of the net in the Capital One Cup win at Hartlepool, before saying his final farewell to supporters after his late substitute appearance in Saturday’s home win over Norwich City.
