Reading striker Yann Kermorgant has put his retirement plans on hold by signing a contract extension with the club.

Kermorgant, 35, had intended to call time on his playing career at the end of this season, but has now signed a deal through to the summer of 2019.

He scored 19 goals last season as the Royals finished third and reached the Championship play-off final.

"Everyone is happy he has signed up to stay with us for another year," Reading manager Jaap Stam said.
