Michael Carrick has signed a new contract with Manchester United.

The midfielder's extended deal ties him to United until the summer of 2015, with the option of a further year.

His previous contact was due to expire at the end of the current season.

Carrick, who has won five Premier League titles and one Champions League since joining from Tottenham in 2006, said: "It's great to extend my contract at this club. I am really enjoying my football.

"The club has gone through a few changes and working under David Moyes has been fantastic. I have won many trophies in my years playing here and I am looking forward to achieving more in the future."

Moyes said: "I am delighted Michael has extended his contract. During my short time at the club it hasn't been hard to notice that Michael is a great reader of the game and has excellent passing ability.

"He is an exceptional man and a true professional and it's great that he has committed himself to the club."

Carrick is currently recovering from an Achilles injury and is not expected back before mid-December.

With Carrick and Phil Jones both missing Sunday's trip to Cardiff, United boss Moyes will be selecting from 39-year-old Ryan Giggs, £27.5million new boy Marouane Fellaini, who has taken time to adapt following his summer deadline-day move from Everton, Tom Cleverley and Anderson, who has rarely impressed on a consistent basis in over six years at the club.
