The 23-year-old will spend 28 days at The Valley under former Royals boss Alan Pardew with the loan expiring on March 31.

After being an integral part of Reading´s first season in the Barclays Premier League, Lita has played just 15 games this season and scored only a solitary goal in the Carling Cup.
