Tom McIntyre has signed a new deal with English Championship club Reading as the defensive Scotland prospect continues to impress.

The centre-back has made a handful of Scotland U21s appearances, featuring 26 times for Reading in the Championship last season. He signs a new deal until 2024 with McIntyre looking to make himself a mainstay at his boyhood club.

Aged just 22, the defender could be a potential option for Steve Clarke’s senior Scotland side in the coming years. Centre-back may be an issue for Clarke in the coming years with Declan Gallagher, Grant Hanley and Liam Cooper approaching and hitting 30 this year.

Reading chief executive Dayong Pang added: “I am delighted that Tom has signed a new deal with Reading – he is an ambitious young man who has become an increasingly important member of the squad in the past few seasons. Tom is a local boy who is passionate about this club, and he is fantastic example to the future generations.”
