Reading goalkeeper Jonathan Bond has agreed to stay on loan at Peterborough United for the rest of the season, HITC Sport understands.

Bond joined Peterborough in the summer on an initial six-month deal and the former England Under-21 international has impressed at the ABAX Stadium.

The 24-year-old has kept five clean sheets in 25 games and helped the Posh into the top six in League One as they look to try and win promotion to the Championship.

A number of other clubs are understood to have expressed an interest in signing Bond when his inital loan spell ended, but the keeper has opted to stay with Peterborough and help them in their bid to win promotion.

Bond is out of contract at Reading at the end of the season having joined the club from Watford in the summer of 2015.

Several sides are monitoring Bond's contract situation at Reading, and could pounce for him when he becomes a free agent.

Bond is thought likely to review his future options at the end of the season, as he will want to focus on the rest of the campaign at Peterborough and get the club promoted.
