Manchester United star Tom Cleverley has signed a new long-term deal to keep him at Old Trafford until 2015.
Cleverley, who is highly regarded within the corridors of Old Trafford, has been rewarded for his impressive form this season with a lucrative new deal.
The 22-year-old has been a revelation for United this term starting all of their Premier League games prior to picking up a foot injury in the win over Bolton last month.
Cleverley was also called up to the England squad for the friendly with Holland in August only for the game to be called off due to the London riots.
Cleverley enjoyed a successful year on loan at Wigan last term and he has recently broken into Sir Alex Ferguson's starting XI after catching the eye in pre-season.
The skilful midfielder, who had been arguably United's brightest performer this season before his injury, was delighted to cap a superb start to the season with the contract extension.
"It's been a fantastic start to the season for me, breaking into the first team and getting an England call-up," Cleverley told the club's official website.
"Having grown up at the club, I'd love to be able to make a contribution to United winning more trophies. We have a squad with great ability and I can't wait to get started again."
United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is a big admirer of Cleverley and he believes he has a bright future ahead of him.
"Tom is one of the brightest prospects in the English game," said Ferguson. "For a young boy, he has a good footballing brain which, when coupled with his energy and ability, makes for a player with a fine future ahead of him.
"It's the United way to encourage our young players to make their mark in the first team and Tom has grabbed that chance with both hands."
