Reading Under-23s star Rashawn Scott hinted at his Royals future over the weekend, sending fans into a frenzy.

18-year-old Scott arrived in Berkshire eight months ago following release from Chelsea, becoming a regular under both Mehmet Ali and Noel Hunt in the youth set up.

Making his first team debut in the final day of last season against Luton Town, Scott was one of the players offered a new contract ahead of next season.

Tweeting on Saturday, he said: "I love the number seven", with a smirking emoji.

Going one step further, when someone replied with "Rashawn Scott re-signing his contract would be my dream come true", he came back with "I'll make that dream come true."

Quickly making himself a fan favourite despite having never started a professional game, he melted hearts by stating, "I'll give my everything for you guys."

Supporters continued to rave over the youngster as thoughts have already turned to the 2022/23 campaign.

As of yet nobody has been officially revealed as having signed a new contract, with 21 stars having been offered extentions according to the club website.
