Reading chairman Sir John Madejski has resumed control of the Royals.
It comes following the continued absence of majority shareholder Anton Zingarevich, who has not been seen at a game since 17 August.
Russian businessman Zingarevich bought 51% of the club in May 2012 and was set to purchase the remaining 49% of shares from Madejski in September but failed to complete the deal.
The Royals are in takeover talks with a consortium from the United States and a group from Oman are also said to be interested in buying the club.
