Sky Sports understands Manchester United star Danny Welbeck has agreed a new deal at Old Trafford.

Welbeck's future at United has been the subject of speculation with contract talks dragging on for some time.

The 21-year-old's current contract expires next year and United have been looking to tie him down to a new deal.

It is believed terms over a lucrative new five-year deal have now been agreed with both parties and Welbeck is set to pledge his long-term future to United.

Welbeck impressed for United last season, establishing himself in Sir Alex Ferguson's starting XI ahead of the likes of Dimitar Berbatov and Javier Hernandez.

Welbeck broke into the England squad last term and scored the winner against Sweden in this summer's Euro 2012 finals.

News of Welbeck's new deal will come as a boost to United ahead of the new Premier League season kicking off this weekend.
