Ireland’s Kelly swaps Fulham for Reading



Ireland full back Stephen Kelly joined Premier League strugglers Reading from mid-table Fulham on Friday on a two-and-a-half year deal.

"I'm delighted to have Stephen here," Reading manager Brian McDermott said in a club statement.

"He has played a lot of games in the Premier League and more than 30 times for his country. He's the kind of player I've been talking about - someone with great experience but at 29 still young in football terms and at a really good stage in his career."

Reading, in their first season back in the top flight, are second bottom after 21 of 38 games and five points from safety.
