The 22-year-old has recently been linked with a move away from the Madejski Stadium as talks over a new contract has dragged on.
But the young defender has now confirmed that he expects to sign a new deal with the club “in the next couple of weeks”.
He told the Reading Post: “Hopefully it’ll be done in the next couple of weeks.
“It’s been a slow process, but that’s what these sort of things can be.
“It’s been coming together for three or four months now, but we’re coming to the closing stages. It’s about getting things right and trying to lock down a few more years at Reading.
“I’m very happy here so I hope it’s done soon. I feel wanted here. The manager likes me and the fans seem to like me. I love the place and it’s a great club.”
He added: “I just let my agent, Nick Hammond (director of football) and the chairman deal with it.
“I’ve tried to concentrate on my football. It will be nice when it’s done and out of the way, but it won’t affect me.”
