    Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has signed a new three-year deal keeping him at the club until the end of the 2013/14 season.

    The former West Ham player joined from Tottenham in 2006 but has not been in the best form this season, although he has improved in recent games.

    “I am thoroughly enjoying my time at this great club,” said Carrick.

    “There is a fantastic team spirit within the squad and I am pleased to have committed my future to United.”

    Carrick’s appearance in the 2-1 loss to Chelsea on Tuesday was his 218th game for United, and he said he felt confident he could add to the three Premier League titles he has already won in his time at Old Trafford.

    “We are in a very good position at the moment and I am confident this team will be successful for many years to come,” he said.

    Carrick joins Ryan Giggs and Patrice Evra in pledging his long-term future to the club and with Paul Scholes’ future still unclear and Anderson struggling with injuries, he could still have a significant role to play this season.

    “I am delighted Michael has signed a new contract,” said manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

    “He has been outstanding since joining us from Tottenham in 2006. He is a true professional and it is great he has committed his future to the club.”
