Ovie Ejaria has come to life in his last couple of outings for Reading in the Championship. On Sunday he was tearing Cardiff to shreds and on Wednesday night he played a vital role in the Royals’ 1-1 draw against West Brom at The Hawthorns. Ejaria scored a cracking goal to put Reading into the lead and even though he conceded the late penalty that allowed the Baggies to rescue a point, it says a lot about the midfielder’s performance that fans were still completely blown away by his display. No one really saw this coming from Ejaria. At the start of the year he saw a loan stay at Rangers come to an end after a poor run of form but at the Madejski, the midfielder has started to show a lot of promise. Reading look set to buy Ejaria at the end of the season for £3million after they agreed a loan-to-buy deal with Liverpool in the summer. It may be early in the season but that £3million looks like a massive bargain for someone who has already been compared to Ronaldinho.
