Reading have agreed a deal to sign Dutch defender Danzell Gravenberch on a three-year contract.

The 22-year-old joins from Dutch second-tier side FC Dordrecht following a short spell training with the Royals towards the end of the season.

His move to the Championship club is set to be completed when the transfer window opens on 1 July.

Gravenberch, a former Ajax academy graduate, first signed a professional deal with the Amsterdam club in 2012.

The Netherlands youth international has also played for Universitatea Cluj in Romania and NEC on loan.

"Danzell is a player capable of playing in various positions, with an awful lot of potential," Reading manager Brian McDermott said. "I'm delighted to have secured his services so early in the summer."
