Burnley have completed the signing of Reading defender Joseph Mills on a season-long loan.

As revealed by skysports.com earlier on Tuesday, Mills was on the verge of a move to Turf Moor.

Mills has now tied up the move to Burnley to become Eddie Howe's fourth new signing of the summer.

Reading are happy to loan out Mills as the 22-year-old is behind Ian Harte and new signing Nicky Shorey in the pecking order at the Madejski Staium.

Mills' move to Burnley could see him come up against his brother Matt on the opening day of the new Championship season when Burnley take on Bolton.
