Reading have completed the signing of Scott Dann, with the experienced defender agreeing a one-year contract with the Royals.
Dann's our man!

The 34-year-old has been a free agent since leaving Crystal Palace in the summer and he had been linked with a host of clubs in the Championship in recent weeks.
However, it’s Reading who have won the race for the player, as his arrival was announced by the club this evening.
Can you remember the score from Reading’s last 15 opening day matches?
Bringing in the former Blackburn man, who has spent most of his career in the Premier League, is seen as a coup for the Berkshire outfit and he will certainly help Veljko Paunovic’s men who have endured a tough start that includes losing four of their first five league games.
The four goals they shipped at Huddersfield means they have the worst defensive record in the division too, so Dann’s arrival understandably went down very well with the fans.
Here we look at some of the reaction to the news from Twitter…
Experienced Centre Back and a leader. Exactly what we need. Welcome to the club Scott Dann
