Brentford have clinched the signing of Reading defender Simon Cox.
The 19-year-old midfielder, who can also play in attack, has been brought in on a month's loan.
Bees boss Leroy Rosenior was delighted to have bolstered his promotion chasing squad.
"Simon is strong, he can pass the ball and he can score goals - from either midfield or attack," said Rosenior.
"He gives us two options, and that is something we need in the squad."
Cox is available to make his debut on Tuesday when Brentford host Swansea.
