The Red Devils have completed the first of a number of contract renewals they hope to sort out before the end of 2023.

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has signed a new contract at the club until June 2027.

The 27-year-old England international’s previous deal would’ve expired in 2024 after United triggered an automatic 12-month extension last December.

“Nine years ago, I signed for this amazing club, and I’m thrilled to be extending my stay,” Shaw told the club’s website.

“I’ve grown immensely since coming to Manchester all those years ago, both as a person and as a player; I know what is needed to succeed at a club like this.”

Shaw hopes for more success with Ten Hag

The former Southampton star has been a prominent member of Erik ten Hag’s squad this season, starting 22 Premier League games. He also played the full 90 minutes of February’s 2-0 EFL Cup final win over Newcastle.

“We’re at the beginning of our journey under the manager and his coaching staff,” Shaw added.

“We’ve been successful already this season, but we want much more. There’s a great opportunity to create something special here. I’m going to give everything to be part of that.”
