DONE DEAL: Porto beat Crystal Palace to Danny Loader signing

Former Reading striker Danny Loader has signed for Porto on a two-year contact.

Sky Sports News reports the 19-year-old also had a contract offer from Porto's Portuguese rivals Sporting Lisbon.

Loader had been a free agent after his deal with Reading expired.

The England Under-20 international also turned down offers in England including Crystal Palace and Leeds.

Loader made 12 appearances for Reading last season, scoring just one goal.
