Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has revealed he was "desperate" to stay at Old Trafford after he signed a new five-year deal to remain at the club.

The 29-year-old finally put pen to paper on a new contract in the week the club retained the Premier League title with victory over Wigan.

"To be able to stay at Manchester United for another five years is something I wanted desperately," Ferdinand said. "This is a fantastic club and I am definitely very happy after signing a new contract."
