DONE DEAL: Bernard pens new Man Utd deal; joins Hull

Di'Shon Bernard has signed a new contract with Manchester United.

Bernard has signed a new long-term contract with the club before joining Hull City on a season-long loan.

The 20-year-old spent last season on loan with Salford City and was impressive in League Two, featuring 29 times as they finished in eighth place in the table. After returning to United for pre-season this summer, the club have rewarded him with a new deal.

The contract runs until 2026 which could take him to 25 years old, meaning he would've been at the club for nine years by the end of it after joining the club's academy aged 16 from Chelsea.

Tigers boss Grant McCann said: "Everyone knows we were in the market for a right-sided centre-half and we've waited patiently for Di'Shon.

“The fact he's been in the Manchester United first team the past few weeks and been part of their pre-season plans shows how highly they think of him.

“From speaking to Michael Carrick, and one or two other people at Man United and Salford, I feel it's a positive progression for the lad.

“He's confident and got lots of qualities; he's quick, good at handling the ball, aggressive in the way he plays, wants to play on the front foot and likes to drive forward.

“We feel we've got a really good player on our hands and we're looking forward to working with him."
