The English defender joins Jaap Stam, a treble-winner with Manchester United, at Reading.
Stam told Reading’s official website: “As we know, Tyler is a talented defender who has played for United’s first team. He can play as a left-back or a left-sided centre-back. He has got great potential in the sense that he is quick and athletic, defensively he is strong and he is good at set pieces.
“As a defender he can go and play high up the pitch as well and that is what we need in the squad.”
The 22-year-old has agreed to a three-year contract.
