Rovers defender makes Royals switch

Published Add your comment

Reading have signed Blackburn defender Zurab Khizanishvili on loan until the end of the season.

The Georgia international has fallen out of favour at Ewood Park this season and joins the Coca-Cola Championship strugglers after a similar spell with Newcastle.

Reading director of football Nick Hammond said: "We are very pleased to add Zurab to our squad and this is another signing that will add very good experience."

He added: "He can play at centre-half, full-back or as a holding midfielder, so he also brings excellent versatility and I'm sure he will prove to be a good addition."
