Reading FC midfielder Pele dropped a hint about where his future may lie after Reading's triumph against Birmingham City.

The Monaco loanee scored Reading's third goal at St Andrew's, capping off a fine break with a delicate finish into the far corner to make it 3-1 to Mark Bowen's men.

Pele admitted that he would be very happy to stay at the club next season - with his loan move set to finish at the end of the campaign.

Pele said: "I'm here on loan from Monaco - we have to see at the end of the season [where his future lies]

"We will have to see what we do at the end of the season but yes, it's a possiblity [to stay at Reading] because I love the club, the club is very nice and the city is very quiet. My family love the city."

Pele also expressed his happiness at the recent form of the team, after two consecutive league victories. 

"We are very happy to go up in the table and we will keep doing what we can to go up the table.

"In the first half it was very difficult, because we played a lot of minutes against Sheffield United. It was a long day.

"At half time we talked in the dressing room and said that we needed to do our best and keep going. We deserved the win because we were much better in the second half."
