Official: Hector Deal Completed

Recommended Posts

Chelsea Football Club have today completed the signing of Michael Hector from Reading.

The 23-year-old centre-back, who has signed a five-year-contract, will return to Reading and spend the remainder of this season on loan at the Madejski Stadium.

Hector, from London and a boyhood Chelsea supporter, began his career in the youth team at Millwall and moved to the Reading academy in 2009.

Having continued his development and gained crucial experience of first-team football out on loan, Hector made his Reading debut in January 2014 at the age of 21.

Last season, under the guidance of former Chelsea player and coach Steve Clarke, Hector established himself as a hugely important member of the Reading defence, making 49 appearances in all competitions and scoring three goals. He also played the full 120 minutes of Reading's FA Cup semi-final defeat against Arsenal at Wembley.

Hector, who captained Reading for the first time last week, has represented Jamaica at international level and started all three of their matches at this summer’s Copa America.

How does a player from a team get sold to another team mentally prepare for the change. How does his team mates who just become his ex team mates remain team mates? Is it like playing for your national team?

He's now no longer a reading player so does that affect team spirit or how RFC fans react to him now?

I imagine tomorrow morning at the Reading training ground, his team mates will be saying "what happened there?" and he'll be replying "F***ed if I know, but I'm off to the Jaguar dealership this afternoon!" ;-)

When I was a kid, someone from Bracknell Town came to watch one of our games (I think he was there in the official capacity of Scout/Uncle). To go from Bracknell's level to play a full season in the Championship is some climb.

By all accounts, he did well for Jamaica against some pretty decent opposition in the summer. I've only seen him once (against Bradford in the FA Cup, in which Reading's other centre back had his nose Cahill'd) but he fared a lot better against Jon Stead than we managed to.
