In the meantime, the striker will spend the 2017-18 season with SC Telstar of the Eerste Divisie, the Dutch second division. It will be Novakovich’s second loan spell while contracted by Reading, the first being one to Cheltenham Town for the 2015-16 season.

      If you are interested there are some good twitter feeds that can keep you up on youngsters abroad. @babynatsabroad, @usaprospects, are two that are pretty consistent with updates each week especially during the European season.
