Exeter City sign Reading midfielder

Exeter City have signed Reading midfielder Jake Taylor on a free transfer.

The 24-year-old returns to the Grecians following a loan spell with the club which lasted for the majority of the 2011/12 season.

The twice-capped Welsh international spent the first part of the season on loan at Scottish Premiership side Motherwell, but has now completed the permanent move to St James Park - bringing to an end to a seventeen-year spell with the Royals.

He is a player we know very well with him having spent a season with us on loan four or five years ago. It is a good opportunity to keep building the squad ahead of next year, and he will come straight into the squad for Saturday.

He is a very versatile player. He is a very bright player and he comes to us with good experience. He has been to quite a few clubs on loan; but obviously his major loan was with us, and I see it as it being a pretty smooth fit in terms of someone coming into the club.

He knows us and we know him, and he will add going forward into next season as we are building the team.

– Paul Tisdale, City manager
