Portsmouth have agreed an undisclosed fee with Reading for 23-year-old goalkeeper Jamie Ashdown.

The matter was due to be decided at a tribunal on Thursday but Pompey will now pay an initial sum with more to come depending on appearances.

Ashdown a product of Reading's youth system, played 16 times for the club.

He agreed a move to Portsmouth in June after his contract ran out but the Royals were still entitled to a fee because of Fifa regulations.

Reading director of football Nicky Hammond said: "I'm happy with the fee we have agreed and feel that it protects the integrity of the academy."
