Sharp Reading-bound

By SFC Media Thu 26 Sep Transfer News

Billy Sharp has joined Sky Bet Championship side Reading on an emergency loan deal, Southampton Football Club can confirm.

The striker moves to the Madejski Stadium on a temporary basis having been left out of Saints' First Team Squad for the 2013/14 season.

Sharp also spent most of last season on loan in the Championship, scoring 11 goals in 40 appearances for Nottingham Forest.

The 27-year-old joined Southampton in January 2012, helping the side seal promotion to the top flight. However, added competition for a starting place saw him move out on loan last September.

He now joins up with the Royals ahead of their home game against Birmingham City on Saturday.
