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."
