Ferdinand extended his deal with Man United

Manchester United centre-back Rio Ferdinand put pen to paper on a new deal that will keep him at Old Trafford for one more season.

Ferdinand joined the Red Devils back in 2002 from Leeds United for a record-breaking fee of £30 million. He has been a rock in heart of United defense ever since, making in excess of 420 appearances for the club.

Ferdinand revealed he is delighted to have agreed a new contract, stating: “I am delighted to have signed for another year and I am looking forward to working with the new manager. Who wouldn’t want to play in this fantastic team in front of 75,000 fans each week? It has been an incredible journey and I am glad it will continue.

“I can now fully concentrate on my club career, which has worked well for me over the past few years. This is a great team to be part of and we are now moving into a new era with the club which is very exciting. I am really looking forward to working with (David Moyes) and winning many more trophies with this great club,” he added.

New United manager David Moyes revealed he is happy to see Ferdinand remaining at the club for one more season. The Scot said: “It is clear for everyone to see that Rio has had one of his best seasons with the club. Even from the outside you can see what a big character Rio is around the dressing room. I am delighted he has signed a new contract and I am looking forward to working with him.”
