Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has agreed on a new five-year contract at the Premier League club after a strong start to the season, the Premier League club announced on Thursday.
Shaw’s United career has been interrupted by poor form and injuries since he joined the club from Southampton for £27 million in 2014, but the 23-year-old has started seven league games and scored one goal this season.
“Since I came to United, it’s been a whirlwind four years that have passed so quickly. I am very proud to sign my new contract and continue my stay at this great club,” Shaw, whose deal also has the option of a further year, said.
“I want to thank everybody that has stood by me and shown me huge support – the management, my team-mates and the fans.
“I want to let everyone know that I will give everything I have to repay them and deliver success over the years to come. I’m still very young with a lot more to learn and I can’t wait to continue my progress under Jose Mourinho. ”
It is reported that the left back’s new deal would see him earn £150,000 a week.
His consistent performances for United have also earned him a recall to the England squad after he was left out for their World Cup campaign in Russia earlier this year.
