Reading have re-signed winger Glen Little on loan from Portsmouth until the end of the season.

Little left the Royals to join Pompey last summer but is now back in Berkshire to boost Reading's Coca-Cola Championship promotion hopes.

Manager Steve Coppell told the club's official website, "Despite leaving in the summer, I know Reading has a big place in Glen's heart and I'd like to think he can make an impact in the next two months."

He continued: "He was a huge favourite in our promotion year and made countless goals with his ability. Hopefully now he will be fresh and inspired to make a difference.

"It's too early to say whether he's ready to challenge for a starting place. We'll look at his condition and take it from there."

Little will also be available to Reading if they are involved in the play-offs.

The 33-year-old former Burnley player added: "It was an easy decision to come back and I'll do everything I can to get Reading back into the Premier League.

"Even if I can just add 5% that might be the difference between gaining promotion and staying in the Championship and I'm really looking forward to it."
