Rio Ferdinand says his priority is to play out his days with Manchester United.

The defender admits he had lucrative offers from abroad before penning a new 12 month deal late, last season.

"There was loads of talk in mid-season about China. That was because I was in the final year of my contract and clubs were allowed to talk to me and I was allowed to talk to them," Ferdinand revealed to the Manchester Evening News.

"There was interest from others but I didn't talk to any other clubs at all.

"I didn't want to because all I am interested in is playing for United. I want to do that for as long as I possibly can.

"At the moment I have a 12-month contract and I am not really looking beyond this season. It was the same last year.

"If David Moyes sees me having a future at United after this coming season then we will do a deal."
