Reading have completed the signing of Irish striker Dave Mooney.

The 23-year-old has arrived on a three-year contract after Reading agreed an undisclosed fee with Cork City.

Mooney was top-scorer in the League of Ireland after grabbing 15 goals in just 22 appearances.

"I am very pleased to complete this deal, which gives us five senior strikers and provides the manager with a good array of attacking options at his disposal," Royals director of football Nick Hammond told the club's official website.

"Goals are the key in any promotion campaign and we wish him every success in his time here."

Mooney joins a number of fellow Irishman at the Madejski Stadium, indeed he will be the fourth striker in Steve Coppell's squad joining compatriots Kevin Doyle, Noel Hunt and Shane Long.
