Republic of Ireland midfielder Stephen Quinn has agreed a move to Reading.

The 29-year-old, a free agent after leaving relegated Hull at the end of last season, will sign a three-year contract with the option of a fourth.

Royals boss Steve Clarke told the club's website: " Stephen is an unassuming player but has always caught my eye and, when I knew he was available, I targeted him quite early in the summer.

"His performances are always of a good standard and he is a talented, industrious, aggressive midfielder who can be influential in games.

"Obviously he has just experienced relegation at Hull City and is desperate to get back to the Premier League as quickly as possible, which can only be good for us. He has previous experience of playing in the Championship and was an important member of the Hull City team that gained promotion.

"Stephen is also a good character who will have a positive effect in our changing room and, just as importantly, on our younger players here at Reading."

Quinn joined Hull from Sheffield United in 2012 and made 97 appearances - including the FA Cup final defeat by Arsenal last year - and scored five goals.
