Charlie Wellens has experience of competitive football already, with a loan at Oldham Athletic last season in the National League, in which he got on to scoresheet.
Now he jumps up a couple of divisions and will be keen to make an impression and force his way into the side.
Finding a club was the first step. Wellens will likely have had offers lower down the Football League, and will consider that Reading was worth the wait.
