Reading have completed the season-long loan signing of Rostov midfielder Saeid Ezatolahi.
The Royals have struggled during the opening weeks of the Championship campaign, with Paul Clement still looking for his first league win of the season.
However, the club have moved to bring in Ezatolahi, who represented Iran at this summer's World Cup and started the games against Spain and Portugal.
Clement told the club's official website: "I'm very happy we have been able to sign Saeid on loan within 24 hours of this transfer window closing. Saeid is a strong, powerful central midfield player with good technical ability.
"He has experience playing at the highest level with both the Iranian national team and domestically with his current side FC Rostov and in time spent in Spain with Atletico Madrid. Now, I'm really looking forward to getting to work with him on the training pitch."
Ezatolahi will not be available to feature for Reading until after the international break.body check tags ::
