Boreham Wood have signed 20-year-old midfielder Aaron Kuhl on loan from Championship side Reading until January 28th 2017.

The son of Reading`s current under-23 manager Martin Kuhl, he first joined up with the academy back in 2008.

Born in Bath, the midfielder came on leaps and bounds during the 2012/13 season. Having made his under-18s debut in the final match of the previous term, he then captained the side to within touching distance of the Under-18 Premier League trophy.

The resulting season represented the under-21s as they won the first ever Premier League Cup, defeating Manchester City.

That December, Kuhl signed a professional contract with the club and eight months later he made senior his debut for the Royals against Huddersfield Town in August.

Four days after being introduced as a half-time substitute, he made his first start for Nigel Adkins’ side at Nottingham Forest.

Ending that season with eight appearances in a Reading shirt, he was one of eleven Academy graduates to make their breakthrough that year.

Arsenal, Manchester City and West Ham were rumoured to be keeping an eye on Kuhl last season.

He spent some time on loan in Scotland last season, playing seven times for Dundee United between September and November.

Capped for England at both under-19 and under-20 level, Kuhl signed a new contract with Reading in July.
