Reading have signed midfielder Hope Akpan from Crawley Town.
Akpan, a former Everton trainee, had a medical at Hogwood today ahead of signing a three-and-a-half year deal.
It is understood the 21-year-old, who was out of contract in the summer, cost around £300,000.
Akpan played for the Reds in their 3-1 FA Cup defeat to Brian McDermott's Royals on Saturday.
He has played 27 times this season, scoring six times - but he has also been branded with as many yellow cards and sent off twice.
