"I'm delighted to sign for such a big club with real potential," he said. "I'm really happy, so are my family, and I can't wait to get started.
"I've known about the interest only for a couple of weeks and it was fascinating news, I was delighted to get the call.
"As soon as I met the manager I knew this was the right place, this is where I want to be and I'm excited. He has really helped me feel welcome, which is nice, especially when you're coming down from home.
"It's pleasing to know the manager is willing to support you in every way, on and off the pitch and I'm looking forward to meeting the rest of the team and helping Reading to get results."
Meanwhile, Royals goalkeeper Adam Federici has been named in Australia's provisional 31-man squad for the World Cup in South Africa.
