Gillingham have signed England Under-19 winger Jordan Obita on a month's youth loan from Reading.

The 18-year-old has played two Carling Cup games for the Royals.

He recently returned from a loan spell in League Two with Barnet, where he started three games and came off the bench three times.

The Gills, who are ninth in the table and three points off the play-offs, play eight games during his loan spell which ends on 31 March.

Obita is on the shortlist for the Championship apprentice of the year award.
