Wycombe Wanderers have announced the signing of Garath McCleary on a free transfer.

The 33-year-old, who plays as a winger and as an occasional striker, joins the club on a one-year deal following his release from Reading in the summer.

The Oxford-born Jamaican international spent eight seasons with the Royals, where he scored 27 goals in 270 matches.

During his time with the Berkshire-side, he played in the Premier League during the 2012/13 season, scored in a FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal in 2015, and played in the 2017 Championship play-off final against Huddersfield, which Reading lost.

Following the arrival of McCleary, manager Gareth Ainsworth said: “Garath has terrific experience playing at this level and I’m delighted to bring him here to give us another option going forward.

“He’s very quick and direct and will suit the way we play.

“He’s been without a club since the summer but kept himself fit and sharp so we hope to be able to bring him into a matchday squad very soon and I’m looking forward to seeing him in action.”
