Saints land Bignall

Reading forward Nicholas Bignall has joined Southampton on a month-long loan deal. The 20-year-old, a product of the Royals` Academy, is a promising prospect and has already enjoyed loan spells at Northampton, Stockport and Cheltenham over the past two seasons. Bignall grabbed a brace on his debut for Reading in the Carling Cup at the start of last season, before going on to make his Championship bow as a substitute in January's 1-0 win over Barnsley. He arrives at St Mary`s to boost a bare Saints forward line, with Rickie Lambert the League One club`s only available senior striker.
