Ghana striker Kwesi Appiah has joined Championship side Reading on

loan until the end of the season.

The Eagles striker, who recently put pen to paper on a new contract

with the club, has joined the Royals until May.

It will be his first taste of Championship football since he featured

for Palace in the division during 2012/13. In total he has made 10

appearances for the Eagles since arriving from Margate in 2012, with

his last outing coming in August 2013 in a Capital One Cup game

against Bristol City.

During that time he had loan spells at Cambridge United, Notts County

and AFC Wimbledon, and featured prominently for the U’s earlier this

season in League Two when he scored eight times.

That form earned him a maiden call-up to the Ghana squad for the

Africa Cup of Nations in January, where he won four caps as he helped

the Black Stars reach the final, and is currently on international

duty ahead of friendlies against Senegal and Mali in France.

He will report for training with Reading upon his return to England,

and is the second Palace striker to spend time on loan at the Madejski

Stadium this season.
