Alex commits to Reading FC
The 24-year-old came through our Academy ranks and has made almost 200 career appearances already, as well as becoming a full Ireland international.
“He is a leader and a winner, and that is going to be crucial for us as we go into the new campaign. He has been there and done it before. He has a vast amount of experience for a player who is only 24 years old, and his best years are still ahead of him.
“This is a massively important signing for the club.”
Alex said, “Everyone knows Reading is close to my heart – I have come through the ranks since I was 12 years old. To be playing for this club is a great feeling and it feels great putting pen to paper. It has taken a little while but I always said that I wanted to stay at Reading and I’m so thankful that I can be a Reading player. I’ve said that I wanted to feel valued, and that’s the case now.
“It’s great to be part of something that we can build on this year. I can’t wait to get my teeth stuck into this promotion campaign, we’ve done it once before and we’ll be looking to do it once again.”
"He is an outstanding member of our first team squad and I am delighted he has signed his new contract to remain at the club.”
