Norwich have signed Reading striker David Mooney on a one-month loan deal.
The Canaries will have the option of extending the agreement at the end of that initial spell.
The 24-year-old joined Reading last summer from Cork but has made just two substitute appearances in the Carling Cup for Steve Coppell's side.
His progress was hindered by a broken ankle sustained during a loan stint at Stockport earlier in the season, and the Irishman has only recently returned to full fitness.
Norwich boss Bryan Gunn told the club's official website: "David will hopefully be bringing goals with him. He is hungry and eager to play Championship football."
Reading director of football Nick Hammond said: "Following his recent injury and his hat-trick for the reserves this week, this is a great opportunity for Dave to gain match fitness with a good club at a very competitive level."
Meanwhile, Norwich have allowed teenage forward Kris Renton to join Kings Lynn on loan until 4th April.
The 18-year-old became the youngest player to represent the Canaries when he came on as substitute against Leicester in April 2007.
He broke his leg shortly after achieving that feat and will be hoping a spell in the Blue Square Premier will allow him to force his way back into the reckoning at Carrow Road.
