A January exit appears inevitable for the 26-year-old, who has made 88 appearances for Ajax since joining in 2011, and according to De Telegraaf, Reading have already made contact with the players agent.

Reading’s Director of football Brian Tevreden told the newspaper, “I have indeed spoken to his agent (Nana Tutu) and asked about the possibility.

“Jaap Stam thinks Thulani is a really good player but we also have to make sure his signing does not block the path of any of the youngsters at the club who are coming through.

“That is why he haven’t taken any firm decision yet.”

Serero will be familiar with Stam, having played under the coach when he was in charge of Jong Ajax.
