Alex Pearce: Reading defender had been linked with Newcastle and Liverpool

The 24-year-old centre-back was out of contract this summer and had been linked with Newcastle and Liverpool, but has chosen to remain with the relegated Royals until 2015.

Pearce said: "Everyone knows Reading is close to my heart - I have come through the ranks since I was 12.

"To be playing for this club is a great feeling and it feels great putting pen to paper. It has taken a little while but I always said that I wanted to stay at Reading and I'm so thankful that I can be a Reading player.

"I've said that I wanted to feel valued, and that's the case now.

"It's great to be part of something that we can build on this year. I can't wait to get my teeth stuck into this promotion campaign, we've done it once before and we'll be looking to do it once again."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
