Exeter City have completed the signing of forward Nicholas Bignall from Reading on an initial month-long loan contract.
Bignall, 21, emerged through the youth system at the Madejski Stadium and has so far made four first-team starts for the Berkshire side.
But it is on loan where the pacy frontman, who can also play out wide, has enjoyed more frequent outings.
Since late 2008 Bignall has spent time at Northampton, Cheltenham, Stockport, Southampton, Bournemouth and Brentford.
His stints at St Mary's, Dean Court and Griffin Park each came last season, where he made a total of four starts and 11 appearances albeit without finding the net.
