Reading defender Joseph Mills has signed a two-and-a-half year extension to his current deal, which will keep him at the Madejski Stadium until 2014.

The 22-year old originally signed a one-year deal, following his free transfer move from Championship rivals Southampton. However, Royals boss Brian McDermott has been impressed with his progress, deciding to extend the youngsters deal.
