Jordan Obita has returned to pre-season training after nearly two years on the sidelines with injury.

The 25-year-old defender has been a firm fans favourite in his time at the Madejski and the news will serve as a huge boost ahead of the new campaign.

Obita suffered a knee injury against Hull at home in September 2017 and was due to be back for the start of the 2018/19 season.

However, Obita suffered further setbacks and had to have three operations in total.

The Oxford born player was all smiles as he reported back for training this morning.
