League One side Crawley Town have completed the loan signing of Reading midfielder Jake Taylor.

The 21-year-old, who had a spell at Cheltenham earlier this season, joins the West Sussex side on an initial one-month deal.

The Wales Under-21 international came through the youth ranks at Reading and has made two senior appearances for the Premier League club.

He made 34 appearances last season whole on loan at Aldershot and Exeter.

Reds boss Richie Barker told the club website: "He can play in any number of positions including up front or just behind the striker.

"That is good for us at the moment because we are a little bit light on numbers and we have a lot of games coming up.

"He will get opportunities and he wants to impress."
