Winger Jesse Lingard has signed a new contract at Manchester United which keeps him at the club until June 2021 with the option to extend for a further year, according to a report on the club website.
The 24-year-old is a product of the club’s Academy system and has been at the club since the age of seven. The Warrington-born player made his senior debut at Old Trafford against Swansea City on the opening day of the 2014/2015 English Premier League season.
He has gone on to make 70 appearances and has scored 11 goals for the Red Devils, three of which came at Wembley Stadium to help secure three trophies. While he isn't a sure-shot starter under Jose Mourinho, his high work-rate make him an important squad member as United are generally competing in several competitions each season.
Jesse Lingard said: “Manchester United has always been a big part of my life. I have been with the club since the age of seven and I feel great pride every time I pull the shirt on. To have scored in two cup finals for my boyhood club were immensely proud moments for me and my family.
"As a team, we have already won a major trophy this season and I look forward to helping us win many more under this great manager. I would like to say a special thank you to the fans for the great support they have always given me and the team.”
United manager Jose Mourinho said: "Jesse has been with the club since the age of seven. He has good intelligence which, when combined with his energy and ability, makes for a player with a great future ahead of him. Jesse is a popular member of the squad and I am delighted he has signed a new contract."
