Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has extended his contract until June 2023, with the option of another year.

United have been considering letting McTominay leave on loan, with Celtic among the interested parties, but caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed on Friday that he does not expect much movement, while confirming the club had begun talks over the new deal.

The 22-year-old, who came through United's academy system, has featured eight times this season - twice under Solskjear - but is highly thought of by the Norweigan and his long-term future has now been committed to the club.

"He's an intelligent player and wants to learn all the time. I am delighted he has signed a new contract and there is no doubt that he has a bright future ahead of him."
