Ashley Young TEAMtalk

Full-back Ashley Young has signed a one-year contract extension with Manchester United, the club have announced.

Signed from Aston Villa in 2011, the 33-year-old has won the Premier League, FA Cup, Europa League and EFL Cup during his time at Old Trafford.

Young has successfully transitioned from winger to full-back in recent seasons, as well as taking up a leadership role and regularly wearing the captain’s armband for United.

The 33-year-old will now set to stay at Old Trafford for at least one more year amid interest from elsewhere.

Young’s previous deal expired in the summer.

Asked about his contract status in December, the full-back said: “That’s up to the club. I feel as fit as when I was 21 years old.

“As long as my legs can keep taking me up and down the pitch I’d love to stay here.”

Young is the latest United player to commit himself to the club after Anthony Martial and Phil Jones both penned contract extensions.
