Chelsea Football Club have today completed the
signing of Michael Hector from Reading.

The 23-year-old centre-back, who has signed a
five-year-contract, will return to Reading and
spend the remainder of this season on loan at the
Madejski Stadium.

Hector, from London and a boyhood Chelsea
supporter, began his career in the youth team at
Millwall and moved to the Reading academy in

Having continued his development and gained
crucial experience of first-team football out on
loan, Hector made his Reading debut in January
2014 at the age of 21.

Last season, under the guidance of former
Chelsea player and coach Steve Clarke, Hector
established himself as a hugely important
member of the Reading defence, making 49
appearances in all competitions and scoring
three goals. He also played the full 120 minutes
of Reading's FA Cup semi-final defeat against
Arsenal at Wembley.

Hector, who captained Reading for the first time
last week, has represented Jamaica at
international level and started all three of their
matches at this summer’s Copa America.
