Novakovich was bound for Marquette University as he signed a letter of intent to play college soccer at the institution, but nixed those plans when he signed on to join Reading in June 2014.
The towering forward would then head out on loan to National League team Cheltenham Town in November 2015.
Upon his return from loan, Novakovich was assigned to Reading's Under-23 team for the 2016-2017 season, in which he scored 16 goals.
In July 2017, Reading and Novakovich came to terms on a new two-year contract and he will head to join SC Telstar of the Dutch Eerste Divsie on a season-long loan.
Novakovich has represented the United States at various youth levels.
