Michael Carrick has agreed to extend his contract at Manchester United until June 2015.

England international Carrick said: "I am really enjoying my football. The club has gone through a few changes and working under David Moyes has been fantastic.

"I have won many trophies in my years playing here and I am looking forward to achieving more in the future."

Carrick has established himself as one of the most effective midfielders in the Barclays Premier League since his arrival from Tottenham Hotspur in 2006.

Since then, he has won five Premier League titles, one League Cup, a FIFA Club World Cup and a UEFA Champions League.

Moyes said: "I would be surprised if he wasn't part of the England squad that went to the World Cup." 

Carrick has made 334 appearances in seven years at United. Moyes has been extremely impressed with the 32-year-old's performance so far - even though he has only played 10 games for the Red Devils this season.

Moyes added: "I am delighted Michael has extended his contract. During my short time at the club it hasn’t been hard to notice that Michael is a great reader of the game and has excellent passing ability.

"He is an exceptional man and a true professional and it’s great that he has committed himself to the club."

Carrick is currently recovering from an injury he picked up in his side's Premier League win over Arsenal two weeks ago.
