Reading have further strengthened their squad with the loan signing of out-of-favour Bournemouth striker Lewis Grabban.
The 29-year-old, who has made just six appearances for the Cherries this campaign, will stay with the Sky Bet Championship promotion hopefuls until the end of the season.
Jaap Stam's third-place side are currently three points off the automatic promotion places following Tuesday evening's 1-0 victory at Birmingham.
Grabban, who rejoined Bournemouth from Norwich for around £8million last January, is the second deadline-day arrival at the Madejski Stadium after Reading earlier brought in West Ham's Reece Oxford on loan.
Royals chief executive Nigel Howe told the club's official website: "I am delighted that we have been able to add some extra fire power to the squad in the form of a proven goalscorer like Lewis. And I am very pleased that a striker in such high demand chose to come to join the Royals."
Grabban, who began his career with Crystal Palace, has also played for Oldham, Motherwell, Millwall, Brentford and Rotherham.
