Reading have signed goalkeeper Sam Walker on a three-year contract, after his contract expired at Colchester United this summer.

Walker, 26, is reunited with Royals boss Paul Clement - who he worked with at Chelsea while a youth team player.

The Gravesend-born keeper joined Colchester on an initial loan basis in January 2013 which after becoming permanent saw him make 213 appearances.

"He is going to provide good competition," Clement said.external-link

"I am looking forward to reuniting with him here at Reading, 10 years since working with him as a youth player at Chelsea. In those ten years, Sam has gained a lot of valuable experience."
