Obita joins Oldham on loan

Well it's hardly a season defining deadline deal, but the club have confirmed that young winger Jordan Obita has joined League One Oldham on a one-month loan deal.

The 19-year-old has made a couple of Carling Cup appearances for the Royals but he's largely been stuck playing U21 football since the end of a frustrating loan spell at Portsmouth back at the start of the season. Obita started well on the South coast but a red card, ironically against Oldham, ,led to him losing his place ad he was never quite able to win it back.

Still, this gives the England youth team winger the perfect chance to get some more first team practice and he'll also be eligable to play for Paul Dickov's side in their FA Cup 5th round game with Everton next month.
