Wycombe have signed young goalkeeper Jamie Young on a one-year deal.
Wycombe Wanderers have signed young goalkeeper Jamie Young on a one-year deal after he impressed on trial at the club.
The 20-year-old was released by Reading at the end of last season after failing to make a consistent breakthrough into the first team at The Madejski Stadium.
He spent six months on loan at Rushden & Diamonds last season, and was an unused substitute in the game against The Chairboys in October.
The Australian-born youngster comes in to challenge countryman Frank Talia for the number one spot at Adams Park, and is boss Paul Lambert's fourth summer signing.
Chris Palmer, Sam Stockley, and loanee Anthony Grant have all joined the League Two outfit for the coming season, though Young is not expected to be the last addition.
The Royals are hoping to make two more additions before the first game of the season against Wrexham on Saturday, one of which is expected to be former player Steve Guppy (pictured).
Meanwhile, keeper Steve Williams, who signed a new one-year deal at the club on Tuesday, has joined Forest Green Rovers on loan.
There had been much speculation about the player's future before Young's signing, and the 23-year-old has now agreed to join the non-league outfit for the whole of next season.
