Two Manchester United Players Sign New Contracts

Laird And Woolston Sign New Man Utd Contracts

Manchester United youngsters Ethan Laird and Paul Woolston have signed new contracts.

Laird, 18, has inked a three-and-a-half-year deal with United and Woolston, 21, has committed to the club until 2021.

Right-back Laird made his United debut in the 2-1 Europa League defeat to Astana in November and was namechecked by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in a press conference last season.

Basingstoke-born Laird also came on in the final Europa League group game against AZ Alkmaar at Old Trafford and could be promoted to the first-team squad on a full-time basis before the end of the season.

Goalkeeper Woolston joined United midway through last season but is currently sidelined with a shoulder injury and likely to return in May.
