London - England born-Nigerian striker Chigozie Ugwu has signed a loan deal to Shrewsbury from Reading.
The deal ends on January 2, 2014.
Shrewsbury has played 15 games this season in the English lower division league, and has scored just 15 goals.
Ugwu would be expected to improve the attack of the side
After a one year professional deal with Reading, he signed a new two-year contract in July 2012 and joined League One side Yeovil Town on loan for six months. Ugwu made his debut in a 3–0 League Cup win against Colchester United in August, and scored his first two goals for Yeovil in a 4–0 win at Scunthorpe United eleven days later.
The 20-year scored one more goal, against Doncaster Rovers, and returned to Reading at the start of January 2013 after making five starts and 13 substitute appearances for Yeovil. Soon after his return, Ugwu was included in a Reading match-day squad for the first time ahead of an FA Cup tie with Crawley Town. He was named among the substitutes but did not make an appearance in a 3–1 win for Reading.
