Jake Taylor believes his time on loan at Exeter has helped him mature both on and off the pitch.
The Reading forward joined the Grecians in September on an initial month-long deal and has since gone on to make 23 appearances for the League One club.
And during that period, Taylor says, the Wales Under-21 international has learned a lot about both himself and the game.
"Playing lots of games means I've really been able to get to know the game better," he said.
"It has made me become a lot more adaptable in the way that I've been playing football and being away from Reading is also something that has helped me a lot.
"I've never been out of where I'm from until the last six months I've been down here. But everyone has made me feel really welcome and it feels like home here now. All that has helped me a lot and long may it continue."
