Hayden Mullins goes on loan to Reading
Friday 16 March 2012
Financially stricken Portsmouth have loaned out last season's player of the year, the midfielder Hayden Mullins, to Championship title hopefuls Reading until the end of the season.
The 32-year-old has a wealth of experience, having played in over 500 games. He was also born in Reading and has a son in the Royals' academy system.
"It's been a long time coming really. I wanted to play for the club, being local, and it nearly happened last year," he said. "I'm glad to be here. I'll try and back the boys up and if I need to fill in anywhere I will. I know the run that the club have been on – everyone knows that Reading are the team to stop at the moment."
