Reading sign French striker Cedric Baseya

Cedric Baseya
Baseya has had spells at Southampton and Crewe

Reading manager Brian McDermott has added to his striking options by signing French striker Cedric Baseya, subject to international clearance.

The 23-year-old has signed until the end of the season, with an option of a further year extension.

Baseya, who was at French side Lille last season, was out of contract so could move outside the transfer window.

McDermott said: "He'll be part of the group of strikers we've got here and we'll see how he develops with us."

He added: "We've known about him for quite a while now. He has played out in France and was at Southampton as a youngster.

"He's about 6 ft 4 ins and he's good in the air so will win headers, he's aggressive, and he's still very young.

"So he's pleased to come here and it's a deal we're pleased to do. I'm sure he'll do really well in the next year."
