Jordan Obita: Has agreed a new three-and-a-half-year deal

Centre-back Morrison, 22, has signed a new deal which keeps him at the Championship club until the summer of 2017 having made 37 appearances since arriving from Swindon in January 2011.

"It's wicked," said Morrison, currently recovering from a knee injury. "We've been talking about it now since the end of last season and it feels great to finally get it done and now I can concentrate on getting fit and getting back in the team.

"Captaining the side this year has probably been my greatest achievement in football and I want to be back out there as soon as possible."

Midfielder Obita has also put pen to paper on a new three-and-a-half-year deal with the Royals.

The 20-year-old academy graduate has made his first-team breakthrough under manager Nigel Adkins this season following loan spells with Barnet, Gillingham, Portsmouth and Oldham.

Obita added on the club's official website: "It feels great to sign another contract at Reading. It's a club I've been at since I was eight years old, 11 years in total now, going through the ranks and now playing in the first team.

"So much has changed since I signed my first professional deal here, so to sign again is a fantastic feeling."

Meanwhile, second-year scholars Aaron Kuhl and Jack Stacey have both signed professional contracts with Reading until 2016.

Central midfielder Kuhl and fellow 17-year-old Stacey, who can play in midfield or at full-back, have both impressed throughout the Berkshire club's youth ranks.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
