Dominic Samuel signs new Reading contract

Dominic Samuel agrees a new three-year contract with Championship side Reading.

Reading have agreed a new deal with Dominic Samuel, which keeps the forward with the Royals until 2018.

The 21-year-old was loaned out to Coventry City last season, but manager Steve Clarke is hoping that Samuel can mature into a better player with Reading.

Clarke said: "Dominic thoroughly deserves his new contract and we are delighted that he will continue to develop his career here at Reading FC. He is another young player who has benefited from our use of the loan system after a very successful spell at Coventry City last season.

"Unfortunately he suffered a bad injury there but has worked diligently over the summer and enjoyed a good pre-season with my first-team group where he has shown that with normal improvement he can have a very good career in the game.

"Dominic has an eye for a goal which, as everyone knows, is a priceless commodity in the game. Although he has had another medium-term injury setback there will be more than enough time for Dominic to continue his good progress in the coming months."

Reading travel to Bristol City on Saturday afternoon.
