As Royston Drenthe is linked with a move to the Royals, it could be the tough love of David Moyes that inspires him to fulfil his potential.
Reports last week suggested Dutch winger Royston Drenthe is on the verge of joining Reading.
The 26-year-old’s agent told NUsport, “The contract has been signed. A few small things have to be arranged before it’s official.


He has a good feeling with the club and wants to play in England.”
But where most signings are hailed it would be no surprise if, given the player’s history, Royals fans viewed this one more with trepidation than elation.
There is no doubting Drenthe’s ability. After an impressive start to his career at Feyenoord, a move to Real Madrid followed. Although the fact that he started only 15 La Liga games in three seasons speaks of a player who was surrounded by, rather than part of, the Galacticos.
His loan move to Goodison Park in 2011 was seen as quite a masterstroke from then-manager David Moyes. But while his time at Everton was fruitful, four goals and eight assists spoke of a fleeting rather than consistent talent.
In full-flow, the midfielder was a sight to behold. He had the beating of many an opponent, and seemed to see obstacles as figments of his imagination to run past without a second look.
But off the field he caused problems, turning up late for training and causing Moyes to omit him from the squad. Just as he had done at previous loan club Hercules where he arrived a week after the winter break had ended.
Most recently, after a move to Russian club Alania Vladikavkaz, he was filmed allegedly drinking while driving.
And now he is set to arrive on Nigel Adkins’ doorstep – undoubtedly talented but with baggage both literal and metaphorical.
But should the move ultimately work, Reading will owe the new Manchester United manager a considerable debt of gratitude. Because while the Dutchman failed to make the most of his opportunity with the Toffees, he has gone on record to explain the impact Moyes had on him.
Speaking in February he said, “I can only say that Moyes was right in every way. I was not living like a professional player in Liverpool.
Now I can’t believe I blew it at Everton. It is one of the most fantastic clubs in the Premier League.
My attitude and poor mentality are the reasons I ruined my career there.”
As he readies himself for a move to the Madejski Stadium, he will surely remember his last experience of English football.

In which case, Reading may be on the verge of signing a belatedly-polished gem

Obviously desperate for a payday.

Reading confirm an agreement has been reached to sign Royston Drenthe on an initial two year deal. 

Gutted Posh got relegated, he would have love playing at London Road.

Former Real Madrid and Everton winger Royston Drenthe struggles to find a new club — and so turns to rap

The one-time Dutch international has temporarily abandoned his attempt to find a new club so that he can release a rap song named 'Paranoia'

Footballers who find themselves at the end of a playing contract and staring down the barrel of full-time unemployment have a number of different courses of action available to them.

The most conventional is to hire a personal trainer, to keep fit and ready for when a new club eventually comes calling. Or, out of contract players may choose to follow Michael Owen’s infamous example, and produce a glossy 32-page ‘agents' dossier’ in an attempt to cut down on their time spent out of the game.

Or – if the player in question is former Real Madrid and Everton winger Royston Drenthe – the answer is to release a new rap song called ‘Paranoia’ under the moniker Roya2Faces.

The 29-year old Dutchman has enjoyed an eclectic career in the game, beginning his career at Feyenoord before earning a €14 million move to Real Madrid alongside storied compatriot Wesley Sneijder.

But he failed to nail down a first-team place at the Bernabéu and loan moves to Hércules and Everton soon followed, before underwhelming stints at Spartak Vladikavkaz, Reading, Sheffield Wednesday and Turkish club Kayseri Erciyesspor.

Drenthe was last contracted to Abu Dhabi’s Baniyas Club, who ply their trade in the UAE Arabian Gulf League, but has been without a side since their manager José Manuel Gomes decided he wasn’t up to the required standard.

Not that Drenthe was too bothered. After six months hunting for a new club, the one-time Dutch international decided to team up with DJ JiandroBeats to release his rap track.

The pair teased the track extensively on Instagram this week, with Drenthe eventually deciding to release it on Wednesday.

'Subscribe to my YouTube Channel,” Drenthe wrote on Instagram. “Like, share and tag all your friends because there are still very nice things. Stay tuned!'

However it would appear many of Drenthe’s listeners did not get the memo to say ‘nice things’. While the track did rack up an impressive 50,000 views in just 24 hours, it met with a decidedly average 63% approval rate on YouTube.

“Your producer is terrible, hire someone who can make half decent beats,” one YouTube listener advised.

“Drenthe, is that really you?” another pondered.

Despite the mixed reaction to Paranoia, this is not the first time Drenthe has dipped his toe in the music industry.

During his time playing at Everton, he regularly linked up with compatriot and former Liverpool winger Ryan Babel, who also shares a passion for rap music.

The pair even guested on the Dutch radio show Zomersessie, as they performed a highly questionable rap freestyle over the 2006 track 'Brand New' by Rhymefest.
