The striker, who is no longer in the first-team plans at St Maryâ€™s, was reunited yesterday with his former manager, Nigel Adkins, at the Madejski Stadium.
â€śFinally itâ€™s done and hopefully now I can get my career back on track,â€ť said Sharp.
â€śIâ€™m grateful to Reading for showing the belief in me to sign me. Hopefully I can repay the faith.â€ť
Sharp was reluctant to speak about his situation at Saints when quizzed on being frozen out of the team.
â€śThatâ€™s football,â€ť was all he said initially.
However, when asked about his summer, he did add: â€śItâ€™s been a tough, frustrating time, but itâ€™s just another challenge in your life.
â€śHopefully now Iâ€™ve come to a good place, where I can come and show people what I can do.
â€śThe last few months have been frustrating, but hopefully things are going to be a lot better in the future.â€ť
