Sunderland set to make surprise Reading
Greg Halford is poised to join the Black Cats after just six months at the Madejski Stadium
The versatile 22-year-old joined Reading from Colchester United in January but failed to make an impact for Steve Coppell's side.
Sunderland clinch Halford signing
Sunderland Football Club have signed Greg Halford.
The 22-year-old fullback only joined Reading from Colchester United during the New Year transfer window, yet he only played three times for the Premiership high-fliers.
He has now agreed a move to the Black Cats, who have paid the Royals £3.5million, and he becomes Roy Keane's first signing of the summer ahead of the new Premiership campaign.
