According to Andy Carroll, he had spoken with the manager [Paul Ince] on the phone a few times, and the manager wanted him to arrive a little earlier than this, but the manager wanted to make sure he was prepared and able to enter the building and enter the field right away. He also said he arrived there on Monday and has been working out ever since. 

Paul Ince, the head of Reading, said that It makes him very happy that Andy is here and a striker of his caliber naturally provides them strength and a tenacious presence at the top of the pitch, and he is sure it will result in goals. He continued that Andy’s entrance also gives them another powerful voice in the changing room and off the field as well as on it, he is a leader.
