England under-20’s star signs new Manchester United contract

Manchester United 3

Sam Johnstone has put pen-to-paper on a three-and-a-half year extension to keep him at Old Trafford.

Despite Manchester United being in the market for new top-quality players, the Old Trafford outfit have a fabled youth academy that David Moyes will look to continue raiding for potential first-team stars of the future.

With Adnan Januzaj’s emergence this year, there is every chance that a new young prospect could well be playing for the senior side soon.

One of the brightest prospects at the Manchester club is 20-year-old goalkeeper Sam Johnstone, who has signed a new extended contract with the club.

The stopper has penned a three-and-a-half year deal with Moyes’ charges that will keep him at the club until 2017.

Johnstone spoke of his delight on Twitter after the new deal was confirmed.
