Reading striker Adam Le Fondre signs a contract extension that ties him to the Royals until 2015.

Reading striker Adam Le Fondre has signed a contract extension that will keep him at the Madjeski Stadium until 2015.

Le Fondre joined the Royals from Rotherham United in August 2011, scoring 12 goals in his debut season to help Brian McDermott's side win the Championship.

The 25-year-old believes that putting pen to paper on fresh terms is a statement that he is confident in his ability to make the grade in the Premier League.

He told the club's official website: "From a personal level this deal is great for me. I have always had the self-belief that I can play at the highest level and I really appreciate that Reading feel the same.

"I think it shows just how far I have come since signing with Reading from Rotherham, the club are now trying to establish themselves in the Premier League and stay up this season."

Le Fondre scored Reading's first goal of the season on the opening day of the campaign, a late equaliser in a 1-1 home draw with Stoke City.
