Reading summer trialist Jacob Davenport has joined League Two Stockport County on a deal until the end of the season.

The Manchester City youngster, who enjoyed a four-year association with Blackburn Rovers, was released at the end of last season.

Heading on pre-season with the Royals at St George's Park, the 24-year-old failed to make an impression on Paul Ince and nothing went further.

Linking up with League One Lincoln City, the midfielder failed to make a league appearance and departed Sincil Bank.

Now heading to Edgeley Park until the end of 2022/23, it offers the former Burton Albion loanee a chance of proving his worth.

Speaking on the move, manager Simon Wilson said: "Jacob is a talented player, brave with and without the ball who, after four years at Blackburn, has found himself in between things. He has been with us the last couple of weeks so we could take a look at each other.

“The conversations have developed and we have agreed on something short-term and mutually beneficial until the end of the season. Jacob adds further depth the holding midfield area and gives natural balance, being left footed.”
