James Garner pens new Man Utd deal

Manchester United midfielder James Garner has signed a new deal.

The midfielder, who turned 18 this week, penned a contract to keep him at OId Trafford until 2022 with an option to extend for a further year.

Garner, who has been at United since the age of eight and is dubbed the 'new Michael Carrick', made his senior debut in the win at Crystal Palace and was on the bench for the historic Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain.

Speaking after the game at Selhurst Park last month, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was full of praise for the youngster.

The interim United boss said: “I believe he's got the chance to have a great future.

“He knows we believe in him."
