  /  StanLee

Ashley Young has signed a one-year extension to his contract with Manchester United.

Talks have been ongoing since November and the 33-year old's new deal until 2021 is now in place. He is on £110,000 a week.

Though he turns 34 in July, Young remains an integral part of United's first team on and off the pitch. 

His versatility has seen him play predominantly at full back in recent seasons but also fill in in midfield when required.

He is also valued highly by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as well as Jose Mourinho before him, as a leader in the dressing room and a figure who underlines to his team-mates the standards expected at United.

Young has won the Premier League, FA Cup, Europa League and EFL Cup during his Old Trafford career.
