Halford Moves To Reading

The U's full-back has joined the Royals on a three-and-a-half year contract.

I am extremely pleased with this signing," said Royals director of football Nick Hammond.

"We have beaten off competition from a number of clubs to bring Greg to Reading.

"He is an outstanding talent and a typical 'Reading' signing - young, hungry and with the ability to become an even better player than he already is.

"With the help of our coaching staff, we hope that Greg can realise his considerable potential during his time at Reading."
