Reading defender Sean Morrison thinks that he is ready for first-team football after signing a new four-year contract at the Madjeski Stadium.

Reading defender Sean Morrison has insisted that he is ready to challenge for a place in the Royals first team after signing a new contract.

Morrison put pen to paper on an extension that ties him to Reading until 2016.

The 21-year-old told the club's official website: "It's always nice to sign a new deal, now I've got to push on and show all the Reading fans what I can do.

"I'm improving every day and I think if the manager was to call upon me I'd be ready. Since I've been here the gaffer has given me his backing, I know he and the coaching staff believe in me which gives me a load of confidence."

Reading manager Brian McDermott also believes that Morrison has a bright future at the Madjeski Stadium.

"Sean is a player who went out on loan and did really well for us he's got the tools to work at his game and be a really good centre half," he said.

"If he keeps working and keeps doing what he's doing he'll be a very, very good defender. I'm sure he will be."

Morrison earned a number of admires while on loan at Huddersfield Town last season, helping the Yorkshire club earn promotion to the Championship.
