Manchester United youngster Brandon Williams has signed a new long-term deal with the club after making his first-team breakthrough.
The 19-year-old United fan has been with the club since the age of seven and made his debut in last month’s Carabao Cup clash with Rochdale.
Williams’ first start came a week later at AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League and the left-back has now agreed a new contract until 2022, with the option of a further season.
“This season has just been better than I expected, being a first year,” he told the club’s official website. “Getting into the squad, obviously doing well in the league and keeping going until the end of the season.
“I grew up around Manchester and always supported United. I just love the club as well. I’ve been here since I was seven so, near enough, 10 years. I’d like to thank my family and the coaches, who have been here since I joined the club.
“Every single season, I get a new coach and all of them, plus Kieran [McKenna] and Nicky Butt this year, have helped me. My long-term ambition is just to stay at the club and go as far as I can. Hopefully, one day, I can get in the first team and play regularly.”
United’s next game sees them take on Premier League leaders Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side currently 15 points behind the Reds in 12th.
