Phil Jones signs new United contract

Phil Jones has signed a new contract at Manchester United which keeps him at the club until at least June 2019 with an option to extend for a further year.

Jones, 23, made his debut for United in 2011. He has since made 128 appearances and won a Premier League title with the club in 2013.

Louis van Gaal said:
"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; however, I was impressed by his professionalism and attitude during those periods."

Phil Jones said:
"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."
