Michael Carrick has signed a new one-year contract with Manchester United, according to club legend Paddy Crerand.

Carrick's current deal runs out this summer and he appeared to be on his way out of Old Trafford after 10 successful seasons with the club.

In his time with United, Carrick has won five Premier League titles and also won the Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup.

There has been no official confirmation from United that the 34-year-old has signed, or agreed, a new deal but Crerand appeared to let the news slip on MUTV on Monday night.

Crerand, who made over 300 appearances for United, said: "Something that happened today that nobody has mentioned, and I'm delighted that he has signed another contract: Michael Carrick. He's signed a contract for another year.

"There was a situation where it looked as if his contract was up at the end of this year and that was it, but from what I'm gathering he's there for another year."
