Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has signed a new four-year deal at Old Trafford.

The 22-year-old will now remain at his boyhood club until 2023, with the option of a further year.

He has made only three starts in the Premier League and four substitute appearances, plus one start in the FA Cup this season but interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has tipped the Scottish star for a big future.

"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," he said.

”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.”

McTominay had been a reported loan target for Scottish champions Celtic but he's determined to remain in Manchester.

“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," he said.

“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.“
