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."
In a statement, McTominay said: "Manchester United has been my life since the age of five and playing for the club I've always supported is all I've ever wanted to do.
"I'm still young and I'm learning all the time from the manager, his coaching staff and from the world-class players in the squad. I can't wait to continue my progress at this great club."
Solskjaer added: "Scott has been with the club from a very young age, he has progressed through our academy ranks and has made fantastic progress in the last couple of years.
"Scott is a young midfielder and is constantly improving. 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."
