Reading have sealed the signing of Blackburn Rovers' Georgia international defender Zurab Khizanishvili on loan until the end of the season.

The versatile 28-year-old recently returned to Ewood Park from a loan spell at Newcastle United, but has now moved on again in search of regular first-team football.

Former Dundee and Rangers stopper Khizanishvili has made just one appearance for Rovers this season.

Royals director of football Nick Hammond told the club's official website: "We are very pleased to add Zurab to our squad and this is another signing that will add very good experience.

"He can play centre-half, full-back or as a holding midfielder, so he also brings excellent versatility and I am sure he will prove to be a good addition."
