Royals striker Dominic Samuel has joined Sky Bet League One outfit Gillingham on an emergency loan until December 10th, the club has confirmed.
Since the 21-year old has returned from a knee injury, he has played twice for the Reading U21’s.
Samuel also signed a new contract with the Royals in September, committing to the club until the summer of 2018.
The Royals Academy graduate has spent loan spells with Colchester and Dagenham in previous seasons, and last year he made a big impression by netting six goals in thirteen appearances on loan with Coventry, as he helped the Midlands club successfully battle against the drop in League One.
Dominic’s first appearance for the Gills could come as early as this weekend, as Bury are visitors at Priestfield on Saturday.
A week later he could line up against his former loan club as Gillingham visit Coventry at the Ricoh Arena, and the Kent club also take on Rochdale and Shrewsbury before the end of the month.
