Bristol City have completed the signing of Reading forward Simon Cox on an emergency loan until January 3rd.
The 28-year-old, who has more than 30 caps for Republic of Ireland, becomes City’s sixth loan recruit.
Cox began his career with Reading, before making a host of loan spells at Brentford, Northampton Town and Swindon Town, subsequently turning his time at the County Ground into a permanent one.
His form at Swindon – with more than a goal every other game – saw West Bromwich Albion splash out £1.5m for his services in 2009.
Cox enjoyed a dream first season at the Hawthorns, scoring nine goals in their promotion-winning campaign.
Two further seasons in the Premier League followed before a switch to Nottingham Forest between 2012 and 2014 – at one point under the management of Steve Cotterill.
Cox returned to Reading in August last year, signing a two-year deal. He was an unused substitute for the Royals in their 2-0 win at Ashton Gate last month.
Through his Irish-born grandmother, Cox also qualifies for Ireland’s national team and has four international goals to his name.
