​Sunderland veteran O'Shea expected to join Reading

Sunderland captain John O'Shea has agreed a deal with the Championship side Reading, according to the Irish Independent.

The Irishman will join Paul McShane at the Madejski Stadium – another former Manchester United and Sunderland player.

O'Shea wanted to remain at the Black Cats following consecutive relegation from Premier League down to League One, but owner Stuart Donald and new manager Jack Ross decided not to prolong his contract for another year.

O'Shea made 118 caps for Ireland before retiring from the national team after Saturday's 2-1 win over USA.
