Reading defender Shaun Cummings has signed a one-year extension on his contract with the Royals.
The 22 year-old right-back had one year left on his previous deal, but this new contract will keep him at the Madejski until 2013.
Cummings moved to Reading from Chelsea two years ago after spending time out on loan at both MK Dons and West Brom.
He told the club website: "I know what the manager wants from me and know his goals, which have now become my goals."
Manager Brian McDermott added: "He's done very, very well, he will keep working hard and I'm sure he will be a big player for us."
