Oliver Norwood has completed his move from Huddersfield Town to Reading for an undisclosed fee.
The 23-year-old Northern Ireland international, who joined Town in the summer of 2012, has signed a three-year deal with the Royals, who have agreed a fee reportedly around £1.2m
Norwood said: “It feels great to be here and these are really exciting times.
“The manager was a big factor in me signing, with his energy, positivity and the way he wants to play football. That was a massive plus and it was music to my ears that he wants to get the ball down and pass.”
Royals chief Nigel Adkins added: “He’s a very good player and passes the ball ever so well. He had a good upbringing at Manchester United, he’s got lots of games under his belt in the Football League and is a good age. At 23, he can only improve in our environment.”
