Reading land Bournemouth striker Yann Kermorgant

Reading have signed striker Yann Kermorgant from Bournemouth until the summer of 2017.

The 34-year-old, who has made seven Premier League appearances for the Cherries this term, has joined the Sky Bet Championship outfit for an undisclosed fee.

Royals boss Brian McDermott is happy to have secured the Frenchman's services. He said: "I'm delighted to get Yann, a player we have known about for a long time.

"In Yann we have an experienced striker with an excellent record and a player who will be able to work with our young players at the club and be a good centre-forward in the team we are trying to develop here at Reading.

"I am really looking forward to working with him."
