Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck has reportedly agreed terms with the Barclays Premier League champions over new long-term contract.

According to, Welbeck will sign a five-year deal and treble his current wages to a fee in the region of £45,000.

Since returning to Old Trafford after a season-long loan with Sunderland last term, Welbeck has netted five times for United.

Sir Alex Ferguson has shown immense faith in the 20-year-old forward who has impressed all and sundry with a number of impressive displays.

His early season United form also caught the attention of Fabio Capello, who handed Welbeck his senior international debut against Montenegro last month.

Welbeck is the third United youngster to have been awarded a new contract since the summer, with Javier Hernandez and Tom Cleverley also earning substantial pay increases.

Hernandez has been a revelation since signing for the Red Devils in the summer of 2010, while Cleverley has displayed fantastic potential since the end of his loan spell with Wigan.
