Reading appoint Paul Clement as manager
Reading have appointed Paul Clement as their new manager.
Clement takes over from Jaap Stam after he parted company with the Reading on Wednesday in his second season.
Clement takes charge with Reading 20th in the Championship, three points above the relegation zone with eight games remaining this season.
"I'm delighted to have secured the services of a hugely experienced forward-thinking manager like Paul, who I've personally worked alongside during our time spent at Chelsea," Reading chief executive Ron Gourlay said.
"He has a rich understanding of English football having managed in both the Championship and the Premier League in recent years."
