Reading have completed the signing of defender Chris Makin and midfielder John Oster on one-year deals.
Makin ended last season on loan at Derby County
Makin, 32, was released by Leicester at the end of last season, after finishing the campaign on loan at Derby - and recently had a spell on trial at Stoke.
Wales international Oster, 27, was not offered a new deal at Burnley after joining them in January 2005 when his contract was terminated by Sunderland.
He has spent time on trial with Preston and Millwall this summer.
