Jay Tabb, whose Coventry City contract was due to expire in the summer, has joined Championship promotion hopefuls Reading for an undisclosed fee.

Royals chairman Sir John Madejski said: ‘I would like to welcome Jay to Reading and I sure his signing will strengthen our squad as we push for an immediate return to the Premier League.

‘We are entering a crucial final stage of the season and Jay’s signing will bolster a squad that has already well so far this season.’

24-year-old Tabb joined City from Brentford in the summer of 2006 and made 95 league appearances for the club, scoring 11 goals.
