Former Reading striker Joseph Mendes has shared a picture of himself on Instagram wearing a Birmingham City shirt.

He posted the image with the caption “good first session” suggesting he’s in training. The forward left the Royals at the end of last season and is seeking a new club:

Fans on Twitter reacted to the photo of the Guinea-Bissau international:


Although Mendes is available on a free transfer, I don’t see us making a move for him. It’s likely just a picture of him keeping fit before he finds his next club. After all, if he were on trial with us, he would be in full training gear, and not wearing a home kit.

The 27-year-old’s injury record would also be a major concern, and during his two years at the Madejski Stadium, he made just 20 appearances, scoring three goals. There are many better recruits out there who are available on a free transfer.

  • Insult to any bluenose.This player is totally out of depth in any of the divisions,including the Conference.As for the blues shirt it is a hoax.

  • I would not dismiss it just yet he is actually quite a good player and he’s very fast. Only out because of injury and Tony Pulis don’t play to his Style he plays long Ball kick and hope football. This lad needs to be in a team that passed the ball and play proper football.
