Former England international Zat Knight has joined up with Reading and Steve Clarke until the end of the season on a free transfer, according to BBC Sport.
The centre half who has two England caps to his name but has now added Reading to his CV alongside Aston Villa, Fulham and Bolton.
The 34-year-old has been without a club since his brief spell with MLS side Colorado Rapids.
Knight has made 370 appearances in his illustrious career, scoring 10 goals in the process.
The 6ft 6in giant has impressed throughout his career for putting in solid displays and having the ability to lead from the back.
Knight has an abundance of experience in both the Premier League and the Championship which may prove vital to Reading as they have 10 league games remaining but more importantly they are still in the latter stages of the FA Cup as they look to book their place in the semi-finals.
Knight moved to Bolton for £4 million in 2009 so Steve Clarke will regard this as a coup for Reading.
Clarke hoping for instant impact from Knight
Clarke is incredibly keen for Knight to be involved straight away. He told the club website: "With the team currently in the middle of a really hectic schedule, I felt it was prudent to bring another experienced defender to help share the load.
"Zat was back in the UK and looking for a club, I felt he would be a perfect fit."
Knight may find it hard to walk straight into the team as he has been away from the English game for the season but he is available for the away fixture against Watford this weekend.
Coincidently, Knight has just been on trial with the Hornets and could be the sting in their tail come the weekend as they failed to acquire him quick enough.
