Harte to sign new Reading deal
Ian Harte is set to sign a new contract at Reading after Brian McDermott told the veteran full-back he is wanted for the Premier League.
Harte, 34, who was named in the PFA Championship Team of the Year recently, has played a crucial role in the Royals' promotion this season.
The former Leeds man has netted four times in 33 appearances for the Berkshire outfit and will be rewarded with a 12-month deal at the Madejski Stadium.
Harte told the Reading Post: "I spoke to the gaffer last week and he wants me to stay, which I'm delighted about.
"Hopefully it will be resolved in the next few days, there shouldn't be any issues."
