Nigeria forward Paul Mukairu has joined English third-tier club Reading on a season-long loan deal from Danish champions FC Copenhagen.
Mukairu linked up with manager Ruben Selles, who was the assistant coach when he joined Copenhagen from Turkish club Alayanspor in January 2022.
The 23-year-old has struggled for regular playing time this season.
Mukairu won the Danish SuperLiga and Danish Cup titles during his time at Copenhagen.
He played for Copenhagen against Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League last season.
Mark Bowen, Head of Football Operations, said: “It is fantastic to welcome Paul to the club. He already knows all about the standards that Rubén demands, and Rubén knows exactly what he can offer Reading and the role he can play in the team. He has ability, character, a desire to work, and a strong will to make an impact at Reading.”
