Ingimarsson, 29, who stood in as captain while Graeme Murty was injured did not miss a single minute of league action in Reading`s Championship winning season. He is very pleased that the deal has come around, saying:

"Ivar and Brynjar are both consummate professionals and are fine examples of what Reading Football Club is all about.
