“Brandon had a great time at Reading and was made extremely welcome by the club. He trained and played with the development squad and reports back have been very encouraging,” said Mike Steptoe (Director, Africa Soccer Development Academy Cape Town).

“He played in one game ‘behind closed doors’ and managed two assists as his side scored 3 goals. We understand that Reading are interested in Brandon and will be making a decision in the next few days,” Steptoe continued.

“In the meantime Brandon is currently the guest of Leicester City, our home town club,” he added.

Talking about Leicester City, Brandon told: “From what I hear, Leicester City are a great club and they focus on development.”

“They have been really welcoming and I already feel at home,” the youngster told from the UK. “The development squad are away tomorrow, but from Tuesday onwards, I’m really looking forward to focusing on my football.”
