David Meyler joins Reading

David Meyler has signed for Reading on a free transfer.

The Republic of Ireland international will leave Hull City when his contract expires later this month, and has now joined the Royals on a two-year deal (with the option of a third year).

“I’m delighted,” Meyler said.

“I’m looking forward to the challenge ahead. As I’ve said, I’m looking for ambition and the manager outlined that to me and I wanna get this club promoted.”

“I am very happy to welcome David to the club as our second signing of the summer,” Reading boss Paul Clement said.

“He comes here with a lot of experience at this level but also the level above and with his ability and his leadership qualities, David is going to add a lot to our squad.

“At the end of last season, I felt it was important to bring in a player of David’s profile.

“And when I met with him, I got a real sense of his ambition to play at the highest level again. And, together, we’ll be fighting to push this club forward.”

Reading have already signed Barnsley defender Andy Yiadom, and are reportedly set to sign free agent John O’Shea.
