Ashley Young has signed a new contract at Manchester United which keeps him at the club until at least June 2018 with an option to extend for a further year.
Young, 30, made his debut for United in August 2011. He has since made 115 appearances and scored 13 goals, winning a Premier League title with the club in 2013.
Louis van Gaal said: "We are delighted that Ashley has signed a new contract. Ashley is a very multi-functional player. He took to the wing-back position with great confidence and flourished on the wing throughout last season. Ashley is always very professional and has a great presence in the dressing room."
Ashley Young said: "I am delighted to have signed a new contract. The spirit and motivation amongst this team is very high and we are all determined to make this a season to remember.
"All I have ever wanted to do is play football and to be able to continue to do that at the biggest club in the world means everything to me and my family."
