Young goalkeeper Karl Hein has joined Reading on loan until the end of the season.
The 19 year old has yet to make his senior debut for the club, but has 12 caps for Estonia and the move to the Royals will see him provide back up for first choice Luke Southwood after they terminated the contract of number 2 Rafael Cabral last week.
Reading boss Veljko Paunovic said, “Karl is an international goalkeeper with good temperament, obvious ability and the hunger to improve and impress.
“He is a welcome addition to our squad and will increase the strength of our team for our remaining fixtures this season.”
Hein signed a long-term contract with the Gunners last year, and hopefully he can get some valuable first team experience during his time there.
He also follows in the footsteps of former Arsenal keeper Emi Martinez who made 18 appearances for Reading during a 2019 loan spell.
Best of luck to him!
