Winger links up with Portuguese club until end of the seasonPaolo Hurtado has today joined Portuguese side Vitória de Guimarães on a loan deal until 30th June 2016.
The Peruvian winger, who moved to Reading from Paços de Ferreira in August, has made five substitute appearances for the Royals in the Sky Bet Championship – the most recent of which came away at Nottingham Forest in November. He also started for Reading in the Capital One Cup defeat to Everton at Madejski Stadium in August.
His loan club Vitória currently sit sixth in the Primeira Liga, and they host União Madeira in their next fixture on Friday evening.
Reading manager Brian McDermott said, “It’s good for Paolo to have gone out on loan to Portugal – he needs to get some games, so we’ll be able to watch him those games between now and the end of the season. It’s an important move for him and I’m sure he’ll do really well.”
As always, Paolo’s loan move is subject to the normal ratification from the relevant football authorities. Everyone at Reading would like to wish Paolo the very best of luck during his loan spell with Vitória.
