Reading goalkeeper Luke Southwood is set to return to Scottish Premiership side Hamilton Academical on loan for the rest of the season.

According to Alan Nixon of The Sun, the 22-year-old will re-join the Accies this window following a successful period on loan during the first half of the season.

Southwood played 10 times for the side who currently sit second-bottom in the Scottish Premiership and was very highly regarded by all at the club.

The Oxford-born keeper is yet to make a first team appearance for Royals but has been involved in travelling squads, most recently last week at Bloomfield Road in the FA Cup Third Round replay win against Blackpool.
