The highly-rated goalkeeper signed a new professional contract at Reading in May this year and continues to attract admiring glances from some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
The 16-year-old is targeting a first-team spot at the Madejski Stadium this season after impressing during 10 appearances for the Royals U23s in 2018/19. Coniah made his U23s debut aged just 15, which probably explains why coaches both at Reading and St George’s Park are so excited by his potential.
Coniah also impressed for England at the Val de Marne tournament in France in 2018, winning the Golden Glove award.
Most recently, in September, Coniah joined Jadan in lifting the Syrenka Cup with England, where the shot-stopper saved two penalties in the shootout, beating hosts Poland.
For Reading’s U23s this season, Coniah keeps on excelling and at his rapid development, a first-team spot beckons for the teenager.
