Reading have signed striker David Mooney from Irish top-flight side Cork City for an undisclosed fee.
The 23-year-old has signed a three-year contract at the Madejski Stadium.
Mooney is currently top of the League of Ireland's scoring charts, with 15 goals in 22 appearances this season, and has two Ireland Under-23 caps.
He joined financially-struggling Cork from Longford in January after winning the league's player of the year award last season for finishing top scorer.
Reading director of football Nick Hammond told the club website: "I am very pleased to complete this deal, which gives us five senior strikers and provides the manager with a good array of attacking options at his disposal.
"Goals are the key in any promotion campaign and we wish him every success."
