Negotiations with Harper have been ongoing for the last two months and there has been interest from other clubs.
His new contract is said to be for two and a half years and will come a relief to many Reading fans who had been expecting the worst.
Speaking to the Reading Evening Post Harper said: “My agent is going to have a chat with the club on Monday and I reckon things should be done in the next couple of weeks. I won’t let things run until the summer.
“I’m not greedy and I’m not asking for stupid money and hopefully it will be sorted out. I haven’t been stalling, I just wanted to make sure we have stayed on track and I have just been concentrating on playing and doing well.
“There are good times ahead for this club. I don’t want to leave what could be the most successful Reading team ever.”
