Gunnarsson: Not pressing for new deal
Reading midfielder Brynjar Gunnarsson is happy to leave discussions regarding a new contract until the end of the season.
Gunnarsson has resurrected his Royals career in recent weeks following the appointment of Brian McDermott as manager to replace Brendan Rodgers.
The Icelandic stalwart appeared to be on his way out of the Madejski Stadium before Rodgers' departure, but has since featured prominently under McDermott.
The 34-year-old feels he is capable of extending his career with Reading, but is prepared to wait while the club look to preserve their Championship status.
"Things can change quickly in football and I've enjoyed the last few games and the cup run," Gunnarsson told the Reading Evening Post.
"I think I can still play for another year, or maybe two.
"Hopefully we can keep the results ticking over and get enough points come the end of the season to stay up.
"My contract is something we'll probably leave until the summer, though. It's nothing that I've been pressing Brian or the club about right now.
"I haven't thought about anything else apart from doing well now until the end of the season and we'll see what happens then."
