Solskjaer has granted him a breakthrough season, playing the 24-year-old in 37 matches and clearly earning his trust.
"Even when I came to United at such a young age, it's of course a massive club, but I know that they are willing to give youth a chance," he told the club's official website.
"That is what happened with me. Ole knows we will always be there for him. The young players give our faith and do everything to protect him, as he gives all his trust to us.
"I'm very honoured and that's why, as well, I want to stay at United. I want to fight for him, win games and win trophies."
