New Reading loan signing Lewis Grabban hopes to hit the ground running for the Royals alongside former Bournemouth strike partner Yann Kermorgant.
"I've been welcomed to the club by everyone here, players, staff, and fans," he told BBC Radio Berkshire.
"The finalisation of the move obviously happened on deadline day, but I've known about Reading for a while.
"I know Yann (Kermorgant) personally from playing with him, but the rest of the lads I've come across on the pitch.
"Hopefully we can do well like we've done in the past and do well for the team."
