Reading have signed Nottingham Forest striker Simon Cox for an undisclosed fee on a two-year contract.
The 27-year-old, who began his career with the Royals, scored 13 goals for Forest over the course of two seasons.
Cox initially left the Madejski Stadium in 2008 before having his most prolific season to date at Swindon, scoring 35 goals in little more than 60 appearances.
In an official statement released by Reading, the Republic of Ireland international said: "I'm very lucky to have played once for this football club and signing the second time feels just as good.
"I still know a lot of the players here so bedding in shouldn't be too hard for me! "I'm delighted to be here and I can't wait to get started again."
Cox becomes Reading's first signing of the summer transfer window.
