Reading

Keeper joins Reading on loan

23rd January 2019, 14:21 by Nick Harris

Reading boss Jose Gomes has moved quickly to add Arsenal keeper Emiliano Martinez to his squad on loan until the summer.

The 26-year-old spent last season on loan in Spain with Getafe in La Liga and he will now spend the rest of the season with the Royals.

He has made just one appearance for the Gunners first team, keeping a clean sheet in their Europa League win over Qarabag back in December, but will be hoping for more action at the Madejski Stadium.

"I am delighted we have been able to attract a goalkeeper of Emi's undoubted ability to Reading," manager Jose Gomes told the club's website after Martinez completed his medical on Wednesday.

"He will provide excellent competition for the goalkeeper's position and adds quality to our group. I look forward to working with him on the training ground for the first time later today."
