Khizanishvili makes Royals return

The Royals sold midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson to Hoffenheim for a

club record fee on Tuesday and have used some of the money to

complete a season-long loan deal for the Georgia international. The

28-year-old spent four months on loan with the Royals last season

and lost just three times in the hooped shirt. Manager Brian

McDermott said: “We’re really pleased to have him back, he was a

real favourite with our fans, we know exactly what we’re getting

and it’s a really positive addition to our squad.”
