Reading have signed young midfielder George Evans from Premier League side Manchester City, following his recall from loan at Walsall.
Evans had been due to remain with the Saddlers until 26 January but was recalled from his loan on Saturday.
The 21-year-old, who scored four goals in 16 appearances on loan at Walsall, moves on a three-and-a-half-year deal.
"I'm sure he will become an even better player working in our environment at Reading," said manager Brian McDermott.
