Reading sign Liechtenstein’s Wieser

Sandro Wieser has been capped 33 times by Liechtenstein

Championship side Reading have signed Liechtenstein international Sandro Wieser on a three-year contract.

The 23-year-old former FC Basel and Hoffenheim midfielder has joined the Royals on a free transfer after leaving Swiss top-flight side FC Thun.

Wieser played with current Reading player Danny Williams at Hoffenheim.

In 2015, Swiss state prosecutors fined Wieser for a tackle on an opponent in a Swiss league game, ruling the challenge “was negligent and an assault”.

Wieser later apologised for the tackle while playing for Aarau against FC Zurich which left Gilles Yapi-Yapo with extensive knee injuries.

He was also banned for six matches by the Swiss league for the challenge.
