The 20-year-old was the fourth signing inside a week by manager Mark Yates.

"Michael has been on our radar for a while," Yates told the club's official website. "We are delighted to have brought him here because we've been monitoring him for a while.

"We liked what we saw of him last season with Barnet and a good friend of mine, Ian Foster, recommended him as a decent defender from when he was at Dundalk. He is 6 foot 3/4, quick, mobile and strong."

Hector has previously spent loan spells with Dundalk, Barnet, Shrewsbury and Aldershot.

He becomes the third player to join the Robins from the Royals this season, following in the footsteps of Lawson D'Ath and Jake Taylor.

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
