Former Bulls striker Mathieu Manset has signed on at Swiss side FC Sion.
The Swiss press are reporting the 22 year old has signed a three year deal until 2015, but makes no reference to any transfer fee. Manset's agent is quoted as thanking Reading for their professionalism in the transfer - suggesting the Royals have washed their hands of the player whose off-field antics were making as many headlines as his on-field ability.
FC Sion ended last season surviving in the Swiss top flight after a relegation play-off, after starting the season on -36 points after fielding an string of ineligible players. So far this summer they have already signed two players, Gennaro Gattuso and Kyle Lafferty, from Rangers with the intention of returning to European qualification.
