Championship Leeds United have signed former Reading striker Noel Hunt. The 30-year-old, who played under Brian McDermott when the Leeds manager was in charge at the Madejski Stadium, has agreed a two-year contract.

McDermott told the Leeds website: "Noel will bring an awful lot to our squad, on and off the pitch."

"He is a player I scouted five years ago when he was playing for Dundee United.

"He's an infectious character and I'm sure he will engage Leeds fans with his desire, determination and never say die attitude."
