Reading favourite Glen Little has joined Premier League Portsmouth on a free transfer.
Right-winger Little was poised to sign an extended deal with the Royals, but it appears the lure of the Premier League was too strong for the 32-year old and he has signed a one-year deal with Harry Redknapp's side.
Little, who was pivotal in Reading`s record-breaking Championship win, has struggled with injury over the last two seasons, and despite only making two performances for the Royals last season, the club stuck by him and offered him a new deal.
Little has obviously decided that at his age he needs to be playing Premier League football and with potentially only a year left in him, the extra money will be of great benefit to him as well.
Royals Director of Football Nick Hammond said, 'We offered Glen a new contract, but it appears that the lure of the Premier League and European Football proved too strong.`
Little had become a big fan favourite during his time at Reading due to his flair and creativity.
Royals fans will be gutted to see him go, but will surely understand his reasons.
Everyone at Vital Reading wishes him the best of luck at Fratton Park and we hope he stays fit enough to make the mark in the Premier League he was unable to do at Reading.
