Manchester United midfielder Ji-Sung Park is set to be rewarded for his exploits last season with a new two-year contract, according to reports.

The Telegraph today suggest that the 30-year-old will begin discussions with the Barclays Premier League champions prior to the beginning of the new season, and is expected to further extend his stay at Old Trafford.

Park joined United from PSV Eindhoven for £4 million in 2005 and is seen as one of Sir Alex Ferguson's most reliable performers, a natural pick in Champions League games, especially away from home.

The former South Korea captain was instrumental in seeing United land a record 19th league crown with an industrious man-of-the-match performance in the season-defining victory over Chelsea.




 

Ferguson's trust in the winger was also demonstrated with a starting berth against Barcelona in the Champions League final, despite the encounter ultimately ending in defeat.

Park, who has returned to South Korea for the off season, is more than happy to commit his future to United: “Manchester United is an important club and I am happy if I’m seen as an important part of the club.

"In football anything can happen, but I’ve been here six years and I like this club.”
