Exeter City have signed Reading midfielder Jack Stacey and Crystal Palace defender Luke Croll on loan until January.

Croll, 21, has yet to play for Palace, but appeared three times for Plymouth Argyle on loan last season, making his debut against Exeter.

Twenty-year-old Stacey, who can also play at right-back, played six times for the Royals in the 2014-15 season.

Both players will bolster an Exeter squad which has been hit by injuries.

Eight first team players are currently out, including central defenders Jordan Tillson, Jordan Moore-Taylor and Troy Archibald-Henville, while midfielders David Wheeler and Lee Holmes are also unavailable.
