Reading defender Alex Pearce cannot guarantee penning new terms.

Pearce's current deal expires in June.

He told the Reading Post: "As far as that goes, all I am thinking about is keeping Reading in the Premier League. That is my one goal. Everything else will take care of itself.

"Who knows what the future holds?

"Hopefully we can keep Reading in the Premier League. I'm not thinking about in a year's time or anything like that.

"All I'm thinking about is the next 10 games and staying in this league. We were written off at the start of the season. No one expects us to stay up and we will take that on board and look to exploit it."
