English Premier League strugglers Reading have signed Portuguese defender Daniel Carrico from Sporting Lisbon in a bid to beef up their leaky defence.

The Royals have paid around £500k to sign the 24 year old centre-back who has over 100 Sporting Lisbon appearances under his belt.

The former Portuguese Under 21 international joins a Reading side in the middle of a relegation dogfight having conceded 37 goals in their opening 20 Premier League matches of the season.

Carrico was previously Sporting Lisbon’s club captain.
