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."
