Reading extend Sean Morrison's contract

The Royal's defender has penned a new deal which extends his stay at the Madjeski until the summer of 2016 and is hoping to make his mark on the senior squad.
Reading defender Sean Morrison has signed a contract extension with the Premier League club until the summer of 2016.

Morrison joined the Royals form Swindon Town in 2011 but is yet to make a league appearance for the club, instead featuring just twice in the League Cup. Since arriving at the Majedski Stadium the 21-year-old has spent most of his time on loan at Huddersfield helping them to secure promotion to the Championship in May.

The former Robins defender impressed during his loan spell at the John Smith's Stadium and hopes to establish himself in the senior squad after catching the eye in the Berkshire side's League Cup victory over Charlton.

He told the club's official website "It’s always nice to sign a new deal, now I’ve got to push on and show all the Reading fans what I can do."

"I’m improving every day and I think if the manager was to call upon me I’d be ready. Since I’ve been here the gaffer has given me his backing, I know he and the coaching staff believe in me which gives me a load of confidence."

Brian Mcdermott was full of praise for his young defender believing he will develop into a quality player for his side in the future.

"Sean is a player who went out on loan and did really well for us he’s got the tools to work at his game and be a really good centre half," he said.

"If he keeps working and keeps doing what he’s doing he’ll be a very, very good defender. I’m sure he will be."
