Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has signed a new contract that will keep him at Old Trafford until June 2022, with the option to extend for a further year.


The 29-year-old England centre-back joined from Fulham in 2010 and has made 307 appearances for the club.

"This is my ninth season and I am delighted to be continuing my progression with this team," he said.

"We're all now concentrating on the busy period."

United boss Jose Mourinho said: "I am very happy Chris has signed a new contract.

"Chris has been with the club for a number of years and is now one of the senior players within our squad."

Smalling's previous deal with the Premier League club had been due to expire in June 2019.
