Royals fans have their say after Wales international Chris Gunter signs a new two-year contract.

Reading were handed a boost earlier on Thursday with the news that Chris Gunter has been awarded a new two-year contract at the Madejski Stadium.

The 26-year-old has been an ever-present for Brian McDermott's side this season, starting every single Championship, FA Cup and Capital One Cup game that the club have played.

He has been rewarded for his good form with an extension to the previous deal which was due to run out at the end of the current season.

The full-back, who has also been a regular for the Wales side which secured qualification to Euro 2016, has played 150 games for the Royals in all competitions since joining from Nottingham Forest in 2012.

Unsurprisingly, given that the former Tottenham Hotspur man has been an integral part of the club's XI this season, the reaction from Reading fans on Twitter was pretty unanimous:
