The 25-year-old today joined the U’s on loan until the end of the season with a clear task of firing them into the play-offs.
Reed has experienced a rather frustrating time at Bootham Crescent ever since arriving from Bangor City a couple of years ago, while generally being assigned only a supporting role from the bench.
“We spoke to York City at the end of last week and are absolutely delighted to finalise a deal today that secures Jamie’s services until the end of the season,” Director of Football Jez George told Cambridge’s official website. “Jamie has the attributes to complement Michael Gash and Tom Elliott and is a proven goalscorer.
“We think he will be an excellent addition to the squad, add to our fire power and a player the fans will find exciting to watch,” he added. “We spoke to Jamie with a simple remit which he embraced; play games, score goals.”
