READING have captured Port Vale midfielder Alex Smith on a Bosman transfer.

The 25-year-old, who can play anywhere down the left has penned a two-year deal at the Madejski Stadium.

"It's been well documented that we've been looking for a left-sided player," said Pardew (pictured).

"We've been talking to Alex for a long while, and three or four other clubs were involved, so I'm very glad he's decided to come to Reading.

"He can fill a number of roles on the left - wing back, full back or midfield, and he's just the sort of player we needed in that area."
