Alex McCarthy: enjoying playing games and would like to stay longer at Leeds
Reading goalkeeper Alex McCarthy would be happy to extend his one-month loan with Leeds United as long as he is playing games.
The 21-year-old moved to Elland Road at the beginning of November and has conceded once in the two games he has played in - both of which the Whites have won.
The Royals keeper, who is second choice to Adam Federici under Brian McDermott's management, is relishing first-team football with Leeds but is still unsure regarding his future.
"I really don't know. At the moment, it's just for a month until December 10," McCarthy said to the Yorkshire Post.
"The main thing is I want to be playing games. When it comes closer to the time, I think we'll sit down and speak about it. We'll just have to see how it goes.
"I'm playing games and that's the main thing. If I stay longer, for whatever reason, it would obviously be a bonus. There's six games (in my loan) to get under my belt."
