Reading have confirmed defender Ivar Ingimarsson will not play again this season after undergoing surgery on a knee injury.
The 31-year-old revealed last month he had been playing with the injury for some time and after seeing a specialist has been told his season is over.
"Obviously this is sad for Ivar and the team," manager Steve Coppell told the club`s official website. "But this is the correct method of rehabilitation and it will ensure he returns to the squad as soon as possible and in the best possible condition."
