The centre-back's current deal expires next summer and reports have suggested Liverpool are considering a January bid.

Pearce has made just four Premier League appearances for Reading this season and has not played since the end of September.

But the 24-year-old is highly thought of at the Madejski Stadium after rising through the club's ranks and McDermott is now hopeful the player's agent will strike a deal to stay.

The manager told the Reading Post: "We had a good talk on Saturday. He wants to sign and I want him to sign.

"His agent needs to contact the club and they need to get together again. I don't want this to drag on for much longer.

"It's out of my hands. It has to do with the club and the agent."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
