Good news for Reading fans. The BBC reports that striker Stephen Hunt has signed a three-and-a-half year deal with the English Premier League club that will sustain him at the Madejski Stadium until 2011 summer.
The Republic of Ireland is one of the key players in Steve Coppell’s exciting team and everyone at the club is happy that Hunt has decided to commit himself long-term to the Royals. Hunt himself is buoyed by the fact that the love affair between him and the club will last long.
I am very pleased to sign this new deal and show my commitment to Reading. This club can keep going forward and I want to play my part in that process.
Reading’s performance in the last one and a half season certainly augurs optimism in the long term. But exactly how far can the Royals go?
