Manchester United have given Ashley Young a one-year contract extension, according to the multiple reports. The England left back/former winger, who’s also versatile enough to play in midfield, will now be under contract at Old Trafford until 2019.

As the Times of India points out: “The 32-year-old’s deal was due to expire this summer, but United have confirmed they have taken up the option of an extra 12 months.”

Young has featured 320 times over the course of his Premier League career, 193 times across all competitions for United.

He has 74 career goals (16 with United with 107 assists (38 with the Red Devils). He arrived at United from Aston Villa in 2011, and under Mourinho he’s regained form. He’s been named man of the match four times this 2017-18 Premier League season.

His play has improved so much so that he’s back in Gareth Southgate’s England squad, in November getting capped for the first time since 2013.
