Pompey sign Royals winger Little

FA Cup winners Portsmouth signed Glen Little from Reading on a free transfer on Friday. The 32-year-old agreed a one-year contract with Harry Redknapp's side after his deal with the Royals expired.

Reading were relegated from the Premier League last season and the chance to remain a top-flight player, as well as taking part in Portsmouth's UEFA Cup campaign, persuaded Little to move to Fratton Park.

Reading director of football Nicky Hammond confirmed: "We offered Glen a new contract but it appears the lure of the Premier League and European football proved too strong."
