Phil Jones has penned a new deal at Manchester United to extend his association with the club.
The defender has committed his future for four more years with the club also has an option to extend it for a further year. The defender has been involved pretty frequently since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge and it seems he is likely to be involved more as The Red Devils do have a number of very tricky fixtures ahead.
Jones was about to be a free player in the next summer but with his current contract he has become the third player after Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial to extend his association with the club.
Jones said, “I am delighted to have signed a new contract. Manchester United has been a big part of my life for eight years and I love everything about this club.
“I am excited about the challenges that lie ahead of us as we prepare for a very busy period in the season. I would like to thank Ole and the coaching staff for their continued support in my development.”
Solskjaer also lauded the player’s potential. “Phil knows what it takes to be a Manchester United player. He has won the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League and is now one of the senior players within the team.
“He is coming up to his 27th birthday and entering into his prime years as a centre-half. We are delighted Phil has committed his future to the club.”
