January 2, 2008

READING, England -- American goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann's contract with Reading has been extended through the 2008-9 season.

Hahnemann played his 20th Premier League game of the season in the Royals' 2-0 loss to Portsmouth on Tuesday, which triggered an automatic one-year extension.

Hahnemann, who moved to English soccer from Colorado Rapids in 1999, has been Reading's No. 1 goalkeeper for six seasons.
