Former Reading midfielder Aaron Kuhl has signed a contract until the end of the season with non-league Slough Town.

26-year-old Kuhl, son of former Reading coach Martin Kuhl, played eight times for the first team from 2014 until 2015 after breaking through the youth set-up.

Picking up a series of injuries, he has spent time in Spain and Iceland but trials came to nothing.

In his second spell with the Rebels, he is a key part of the midfield at Arbour Park in National League South.

Speaking on the new contract, Slough manager Scott Davies- another former Reading Academy graduate- was full of praise for the favourite.

"It was massive for us to keep hold of Kuhly at a time when the squad is in transition, with some players coming in and some leaving.

“For me, Kuhly is not only one of the best midfielders in the league, but also someone who leads by example on and off the pitch.

“He is someone that we trust wholeheartedly and it’s great that he has shown loyalty to the club in signing a contract despite having offers to go elsewhere.”

Adding words on his new deal, Kuhl said: "At one point I didn’t think I would finish the season at Slough, however I am not one to walk away from the club or teammates in the face of a challenge.

“We definitely have some hard work to do to turn our season around, but I know with the lads we have at the moment, we can push up the league.

“I’m fully behind Scotty, Togs and the new management!

“Thanks to all the fans who have stuck with us and shown support home and away, let’s continue this in the second half of the season!"

In a difficult season, in which their previous managerial team of Neil Baker and Jon Underwood left after a decade in charge, Slough sit one place above the relegation zone.
