Reading have agreed to allow Johnny Mullins to stay with Kidderminster until the end of the season.
Reading have agreed to allow defender Johnny Mullins to stay with Conference club Kidderminster until the end of the season.
The 19-year-old has become a key player for the Harriers since joining them in a loan deal back in October.
Now Mullins will remain at Aggborough Stadium until the end of the current campaign after already spending time with the club last season as well.
The former Chelsea youngster is delighted with the deal and admits he would move to Kidderminster on a permanent basis if Reading boss Steve Coppell (pictured) decides not to renew his contract at the end of the year.
"I'm really pleased to be staying for the season," the player said on Harriers' website.
"I'll be playing up here until my contract runs out so effectively I'm playing for a new deal there (at Reading).
"If I were to be a free agent come the summer time then I'd love to stay here, but I need to work hard to ensure I'm still what the club is looking for.
"I'm playing my football for Kidderminster and I'm happy doing so, and personally I'm very settled here, too."
