Goalkeeper Adam Federici has penned a new two-and-a-half-year contract with Reading.
Manager Brian McDermott admitted to being delighted with the news as the 25-year-old's current deal at the Championship club was set to expire in the summer.
The Australia international will now remain at the Madejki Stadium until the summer of 2013.
"I'm very happy here and this is great news," Federici told the club's official website.
"It's good to put this all to bed and I'm very happy at Reading. It's a club that has been very good to me and I don't think it would have been fair if I'd walked out on a free.
"Everyone at the club, the manager, staff and supporters have been great. I enjoy working with them every day and that is one of the major reasons why I decided to sign again."
McDermott added: "I'm delighted with the news, he is a top young goalkeeper and a top guy to have around the place as well.
"He has a real desire to play, he's doing that every single week and it is a real bonus for us that he has decided to commit himself to the club.
"He wanted to be here at Reading, and I know I keep referring to it but we are lucky to have a unique situation here, we have players who want to play for this club and for our fans."
