Bayern Munich have announced the signing of defender Omar Richards from Championship club Reading.

The 23-year-old will join on a free transfer when his contract at the Madjeski Stadium expires at the end of June.

Richards has signed a deal with the Bundesliga champions until 2025.

The full-back told the club’s official website: “My move to FC Bayern is a great honour for me. A dream come true.

“I am proud to be able to wear the traditional jersey of one of the world’s largest clubs.

“I hope that I can help the team to continue to be successful in the future.”

Richards has broken into the Royals first-team over the past two seasons, making 92 appearances.
