Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has signed a new one-year deal with the Premier League champions, keeping him at Old Trafford until 2015.

The 32 year old pens a new contract with a view to a second year, which if agreed would complete a decade at the Theatre of Dreams.

Carrick joined United from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2006 and has gone on to win eight major honours.

"It is great to extend my contract at this great club," said Carrick.

"I am really enjoying my football. The club has gone through a few changes and working under David Moyes has been fantastic. I have won many trophies in my years playing here and I am looking forward to achieving more in the future."

The England international has made over 300 appearances for United across seven and-a-half seasons at the club and last term was included in the PFA Team of the Year after the most impressive season of his club career.

Carrick is expected to be among Roy Hodgson's 23-man England squad for next summer's World Cup finals in Brazil but was forced to sit out the recent friendlies against Chile and Germany with an Achillies problem, which is expected to rule him out until Christmas.

Having made 10 starts in the Premier League this season, Carrick has been a near ever-present during David Moyes' early months in charge at United, and the Scot is delighted to hold on to one of his most experienced campaigners.

Moyes added: "I am delighted Michael has extended his contract. During my short time at the club it hasn't been hard to notice that Michael is a great reader of the game and has excellent passing ability.

"He is an exceptional man and a true professional and it's great that he has committed himself to the club."
