Manchester United have today announced that Ashley Young has signed a new contract at Old Trafford, keeping him at the club until at least 2018, with the option for a further year.
The 30-year old winger was one of the success stories from last season, as he fought hard to regain his place in the side and thoroughly impressed throughout the duration of Louis van Gaal’s first campaign as manager.
Louis van Gaal said: “We are delighted that Ashley has signed a new contract. Ashley is a very multi-functional player. He took to the wing-back position with great confidence and flourished on the wing throughout last season. Ashley is always very professional and has a great presence in the dressing room.”
Ashley Young said: “I am delighted to have signed a new contract. The spirit and motivation amongst this team is very high and we are all determined to make this a season to remember.
“All I have ever wanted to do is play football and to be able to continue to do that at the biggest club in the world means everything to me and my family.”
