Chris Baird: Northern Ireland international hoping for extended Reading deal

The 31-year-old Northern Ireland international joined the Royals on an initial four-month contract after leaving Fulham in the summer.

Baird has started five games since joining the Championship side, but he admits he is yet to learn whether he has a future at the Madejski Stadium.

"It's been a great start for me here," said Baird. "I'm playing football and that's the main thing.

"I'm really enjoying it and hopefully that can continue.

"I'm happy here and we're getting results. If the club wants to speak to me then I'll listen.

"So up until January, I'll keep doing what I can for Reading and we'll see what happens.

"At the end of the day it's down to the club. I'm very grateful to them for letting me come here.

"It's been great so far. All the players and staff have made me really welcome."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
