Reading have confirmed they had completed the signing of Stuart Taylor on a one-year contract after Mikkel Andersen finally joined League One Portsmouth on loan. The former Arsenal custodian Taylor had been training with Reading since being released by Manchester City at the end of last season.
Reading's director of football, Nick Hammond, told the club's official website: "I'm delighted to have signed Stuart. He is a very experienced goalkeeper at the top level and having him here allows us to loan Mikkel Andersen out and get him some games.
"Mikkel was very patient last year, he is an outstanding goalkeeper and did a great service to the team last season supporting Adam Federici so has fully earned the opportunity to go and play."
