The defender was asked about his future after helping Reading to an important 2-1 win over Thomas Frank’s Brentford side. Two early goals from Yakou Meite, despite Neal Maupay’s 45th-minute goal. The victory takes the Royals four points clear of 22nd placed Rotherham United.

“At the moment I’m just focused on contributing to the team,” Miazga told the Reading Chronicle.

“I’m really enjoying it here, the fans and all of the staff have been great to me.

“It’s one week at a time and we’ll see what happens in the summer but obviously I’ve got to keep my options open.”

Miazga has impressed for Reading since joining the club on loan for the rest of the season in the January transfer window, after spending the first half of the season on loan in France with Ligue 1 side FC Nantes.
