Reading have confirmed that midfielder Andy Rinomhota has penned a new contract with the Royals, keeping him at the Madejski Stadium until the summer of 2022.
The midfielder has caught the eye with his energy and athleticism and has made 22 first team appearances, earning him a new three-year deal.
Manager José Gomes said: “I am very pleased that Andy has extended his contract with us at Reading.
"He has drive and determination, which are fantastic assets for any footballer, and he has an excellent attitude and maturity for a young man too.
"He is also a big inspiration for other aspiring players at our club, who can feel that there is a path from our Academy to our first team.”
Rinomhota joined Reading's Academy in 2015, having previously been with AFC Portchester. He went on to play Under-18 and Under-21 football in his first full season as a Royal.
Rinomhota wasn't involved in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Rotherham United at the Madejski. The result leaves the Royals clinging onto their Championship place by a thread. They're above third from bottom Rotherham on goal difference alone.
The Royals have also announced that four of its most promising Academy players have committed their future to the club.
Defenders Tom McIntyre and Teddy Howe have joined midfielder Jordan Holsgrove in finalising paperwork on deals which keep them in RG2 until 2021, while the ink has also dried on centre-half Tom Holmes’ new deal which ties him to Madejski Stadium until the summer of 2022.
