Karacan: Contract breakdown stories are nonsenseBy Jonathan Low
August 06, 2012
Royals midfielder Jem Karacan has shrugged off suggestions of his contract talks breaking down, describing it as ‘nonsense’.
Karacan made his first Reading appearance in four months in Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Bournemouth, after having his ankle broken back in May.
The midfielder is out of contract at the end of the coming season, but says he is fully committed to the Royals.
The 23-year-old said: ‘There’s nothing to believe in the rumours, I don’t know where it’s come from.
"I’ve been here at Reading for eight seasons and looking to be here a long time further."
And the midfielder said he hopes a contract extension will be resolved before the season gets underway against Stoke City at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday, August 18.
"Hopefully it will be sorted in the next week. I want to be a Reading player for a long time yet."
