Reading duo Kevin Doyle and Stephen Hunt have signed new deals at the club.
Top scorer Doyle has inked a new deal to keep him at The Madejski Stadium until the summer of 2010.
The Republic of Ireland international has been a revelation at Reading since arriving from Cork in the summer of 2005.
Doyle helped Reading win promotion last term and he has been a revelation in the Premiership with his goalscoring exploits.
A number of clubs were thought to be casting envious glances at Doyle, but Reading have moved to tie him down to a new long-term deal.
Hunt has extended his contract until the summer of 2009.
The former Brentford man has been a regular in Steve Coppell's side this season and he scored his first goal of the campaign in the 6-0 romp over West Ham on New Year's Day.
Reading chairman John Madejski was delighted to keep the pair at the club.
"This is extremely good news and I am delighted that Kevin and Stephen have committed themselves to Reading Football Club," Madejski told the club's official website.
"They are two of the nicest lads you could possibly wish to meet, and they are both very important players who epitomise everything that is good about football."
Meanwhile, Dave Kitson is in line to make his return to action this weekend against Burnley after a lengthy period out.
Kitson has been sidelined since the opening day of the season with a knee injury, but he is now back to full fitness.
"I'm really looking forward to it, and it's come at a nice time with this being an FA Cup weekend, which is always a big occasion in the calendar," said Kitson.
"I'm not sure what my record is like in the FA Cup but it's always nice to score, so if I can sneak 15 or 20 minutes and then pop up with a goal it will be a good day's work!"
