Reading have announced that they have completed the signing of Sheffield United striker Nick Blackman

Blackman has impressed for the Blades since he moved from Aberdeen last summer, scoring 14 goals for the npower League One club.

Crystal Palace lodged a bid for the 23-year-old last week, but the lure of Barclays Premier League football means the striker has opted to join the Royals instead.
