Published Add your comment

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has expressed his delight at Tom Cleverley signing a new deal.

The 22-year-old academy product has enjoyed a rapid rise into the first team at Old Trafford after spending last term on loan at Wigan, although an ankle injury has halted the youngsters progression further at Old Trafford.

Rewarded for his fine start to the campaign with an England call-up, the Red Devils have been quick to tie-down the player and looks like a star of the future for club and country.

"Tom is one of the brightest prospects in the English game," Ferguson told the official Manchester United website.

"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."


Cleverley has been delighted with the way the season has started, despite the injury, and hopes to continue his progression as a United player for years to come.

“It’s been a fantastic start to the season for me, breaking into the first team and getting an England call-up," said Cleverley.

"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.”
