Reading Football Club have completed the signing of central defender Anton Ferdinand on a two-year deal.
The 29-year-old was most recently plying his trade with Antalyaspor in Turkey, and he has a wealth of experience in English football with more than 300 career appearances for West Ham, QPR and Sunderland, who he joined for £8million in 2008.
The brother of Rio and cousin to former Reading striker Les, Anton will wear squad number 4 for the Royals.
The deal is subject to the normal ratification and receipt of international clearance. Having not played for almost a year, Anton is likely to need a couple of weeks before he can make his mark on the first team squad, and he began that process by training with his new teammates today.
– Manager Nigel Adkins
"I’d like to officially welcome Anton to the club, we’re pleased to have signed three players in the last few days with him, Simon Cox and Jamie Mackie. I know they will all add to what is a very hard-working group of players."
– Director of Football Nick Hammond
"I’d like to wish Anton the best of luck here, he is a hugely experienced defender with more than 230 games in the Premier League, and that experience will also help all of our young players here."
– Anton Ferdinand, Reading FC
"It feels fantastic to sign for a club like Reading. The first thing you feel when you come here is that it's a family environment. I've been away from English football for a year and had some tough times. Turkey is a fantastic place to go and play football, but certain things off the field didn't allow me to enjoy my football. That chapter is closed now, and I've opened a new chapter at Reading and I'm looking forward to it. I've got things to prove, to myself and everyone. A lot of people have written me off and doubted me because I've been away for a year, but I'm here to prove to people that I can offer a lot to English football. I want to offer what I can to Reading, and hopefully that means promotion. I'm champing at the bit to play my first game. I don't know when that will be as I'm lacking match fitness - I'm a bit behind the boys. I'm going to train hard, and when the gaffer thinks I'm ready, then I'll be ready."

The flotilla of 28 yachts are now heading east along the south coast after departing the Solent this morning . The 1,800 mile race around Britain and Ireland set off from the Royal Yacht Squadron at Cowes with a stiff southwesterly wind and a good tide, allowing the yachts to fly their spinnakers.
At 1130 the fleet past Selsey Bill, with over 30 knots of breeze. Musandam-Oman Sail, skippered by Sidney Gavignet, has averaged 30 knots of boat speed since the start and is on course to finish the race in two and a half days, smashing the course record, if these conditions prevail.
Five Volvo 65s are taking part in the event - the first time the teams have raced against each other ahead of the Volvo Ocean Race which starts in October. They screamed through the start line with Team SCA, skippered by Sam Davies, getting the best start. Team Dongfeng, skippered by Frenchman Charles Caudrelier, was just in the lead at 1100am. Three teams have taken the lead in the Volvo 65 class in the first two hours, a pattern that may well continue right through the race.
Southampton have signed goalkeeper Fraser Forster from Scottish champions Celtic on a four-year contract for a fee in the region of £10m.
Forster recently travelled with the England squad to the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals, where he worked with Southampton’s new Senior Goalkeeping Coach, Dave Watson.
In a statement on the club's website, First Team Manager Ronald Koeman said: 'Fraser is a very talented player and we are delighted to be able to bring him to Southampton. This is another important part of our rebuilding process ahead of the start of the season.
'The fact that he has worked with Dave Watson before means we already know all about his strengths and weaknesses, and I am confident that we will be able to help him improve even further.
'Fraser is the perfect fit to help complement the players we already have, and he will add a lot of quality to the squad.
'He is an exciting English player with a very good reputation within the game and, at 26, he will enjoy the best years of his career at Southampton.'

The third day of racing at the Aquece Rio venue in the shadow of Sugar Loaf Mountain in Rio Janeiro, Brazil, saw a range of conditions with wind and waves on the outside courses and tricky breeze inside Guanabara Bay.
A 15 knot south westerly breeze worked its way across the five race areas with outside courses Copacabana and Niteroi experiencing a stable breeze and wild waves. Inside Guanabara Bay was a different story with an up and down breeze that tested the sailors across Pão de Açucar, Ponte and Escola Naval.
In the women's 470 class, Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark, from Hampshire, took the first race victory of the day and sit second overall following a 3-7. ISAF Rolex World Sailors of the Year Jo Aleh and Polly Powrie (NZL) are third overall, tied with the Brits on four points.
In the men's 470 Luke Patience and Elliot Willis (GBR) sit in third after winning the second race in their class. Giles Scott (GBR) moved into pole position in the Finn fleet following a fifth, a race win and a second. The British sailor has a four point advantage over overnight leader Jorge Zarif (BRA) who discards a 14th and counts two fifth places from three races on Ponte.
