Christopher Ross "Chris" Gunter (born 21 July 1989) is a Welsh professional footballer who plays as a defender for Championship club Reading and the Wales national team. An attacking full back, he is capable of playing on both flanks but usually plays on his preferred right side.
He joined Cardiff City's youth system and was signed by Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur for £4 million in January 2008. Rarely used at Tottenham, he returned to the Championship with Nottingham Forest, initially on loan, before joining Reading in 2012.
Gunter has been a Welsh international since under-17 level and holds the record as the second youngest debutant for the under-21 team. A full international since 2007, he has earned over 75 caps for Wales and was part of their team that reached the semi-finals at UEFA Euro 2016.Close
