Man Utd defender Luke Shaw signs new four-year deal

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has signed a new four-year contract to keep him at the club until June 2027, the BBC reports.

The 27-year-old will extend his stay at Old Trafford to more than a decade, after joining from Southampton in 2014.

Shaw has had an excellent season under manager Erik ten Hag, making 36 appearances in all competitions, scoring once and assisting six times.

“Nine years ago I signed for this amazing club, and I’m thrilled to be extending my stay,” said Shaw.

“I’ve grown immensely since coming to Manchester all those years ago, both as a person and as a player; I know what is needed to succeed at a club like this.

“We’re at the beginning of our journey under the manager and his coaching staff. We’ve been successful already this season, but we want much more. There’s a great opportunity to create something special here, and I’m going to give everything to be part of that.”

Shaw, who has played 249 games for Manchester United, was criticised by Jose Mourinho during his time as manager, with the Portuguese boss saying he had to coach him through a game against Everton and that “he has to grow up” and “has to mature”.
