After weeks of speculation regarding his future, it appears that Stephen Hunt is ready to commit to Reading.

The Irish winger has been heavily linked with a move to Sunderland in recent weeks, with the Royals rejecting two approaches from Roy Keane.

Contract talks have been ongoing, and it seems Hunt is finally ready to sign a new deal.

Hunt has been one of Reading’s top players this season and has started every Premier League game.

After arriving on a free transfer from Brentford in 2005, Hunt was originally seen as nothing more than a squad player, but he has come on leaps and bounds since the Royals won promotion to the top flight.

Hunt is now an established Ireland international and a key member of the Reading team and the club will be boosted by his decision to stay at the Madejski Stadium.
