Championship club Reading have signed Jason Roberts from Blackburn Rovers.

The 34-year old striker has signed an 18-month contract with the Royals but the terms of the transfer remain undisclosed.

Reading chairman Sir John Madejski was delighted to welcome the former Bristol Rovers, West Bromwich Albion and Wigan Athletic man who will go straight into the squad to take on Bristol City on Saturday.

"I am delighted that a man of Jason Roberts' calibre has decided to sign for Reading Football Club," Madejski told the club's official website.

"He will bring enormous experience to the club, and I wish him every success in helping his new teammates."

To add to the signing of Roberts, Reading have also snapped up former Derby County midfielder Tomasz Cywka as a free agent until the end of the season.
