Bayern Munich confirm the signing of Omar Richards from Reading

giant Bayern Munich have confirmed the signing of left-back Omar Richards on a
free transfer from English second-tier club Reading.

Richards, 23, signed a four-year contract with the Bavarian
giants, the club said in a statement.

“My move to Bayern is a great honour for me. A dream has come
true. I’m proud to be wearing the shirt of one of the world’s biggest
clubs,” Richards said.

Richards’ move to Munich had long been considered a done deal, but
the club had not officially announced the move until Thursday.

“We’re delighted Omar is coming to Bayern. Omar is a
technically gifted player on the left side of defence. He finds good solutions
going forward, he’s very alert and we trust him to play a good role in our
team,” said Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic.

Under new Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann, Richards will compete
with Canadian star Alphonso Davies for a place at left-back.

He will also be expected to help fill the gap left by Austrian
defender David Alaba, who left Bayern this month after more than a decade at
the club.

Richards will take the number 3 shirt previously worn by players
such as Xabi Alonso and Bixente Lizarazu.
