Reading striker Leroy Lita has pledged his immediate future to the Royals - and insists that he wants to help Steve Coppell's side win promotion to the Premier League.

Lita, who has spent most of the season on loan at Norwich, looked set to leave Reading before his contract expires in the summer, but came off the bench on Friday night to score in the 4-0 win over Watford.

Norwich remain keen to re-sign him on loan but Lita said: "I shave spoken to the manager and he told me he would love me to stay here and be part of things. I made it clear that I have no plans to go anywhere."

He added: "I never felt not wanted, but I like playing. I made it clear that if I wasn't playing then it was better to go out on loan, but I love the club and I want to put in my shift and help the team.

"I'm here now and I want to be a part of this season. I have no other thoughts in my head apart from helping us achieve what we want at the end of the season."
