READING FC Under 23 captain Gabriel Osho has been shipped out on loan to Maidenhead United to gain some valuable first-team experience.

The defender will remain at York Road until March 24 and is available to play against Macclesfield tomorrow (Saturday).

The 19-year-old, who recently penned a new deal at Madejski Stadium, currently sits behind Liam Moore, Paul McShane, Tyler Blackett, Tiago Ilori and Axel Andresson in boss Jaap Stam's pecking order.

He has been a mainstay in the club's Under 23 side and picked up the captain's armband.
