England defender Phil Jones has signed a new deal with Manchester United which keeps him at Old Trafford until June 2019.

The 23-year-old, who has an option to extend for a further year, has made 128 appearances for United since making his debut in 2011, collecting a Premier League winner's medal in 2013.

Jones told the club's official website: "I am delighted to have signed a new deal. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here so far and am looking forward to continuing my development as a player.  

"This a great club to be part of and I cannot wait to start the new campaign. I would like to thank the manager, coaching staff and fans for their continued support."

United manager Louis van Gaal added: "We are delighted that Phil has signed a new contract. He is a talented footballer with great versatility and can play in a number of positions. 

"Phil is a relatively young defender who is developing all the time. He missed some of last season due to injury but I was impressed by his professionalism and attitude during those periods." 

Jones has 17 senior England caps and has also represented his county at U19 and U21 level.
