Chris Baird: Reading sign former Fulham defender
Reading have handed ex-Fulham defender Chris Baird a deal until January.
Also capable of playing in midfield, Baird has moved to the Royals after Jem Karacan suffered a serious knee injury in Wednesday's 1-0 win over Leeds.
Baird, who had been training with QPR, won his 61st international cap earlier this month in a 4-2 defeat to Portugal.
Reading are waiting for Football League clearance and hope to have received it before Saturday's clash with Derby County.
