Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has instructed the club's hierarchy to offer versatile wide-man Ashley Young a new deal with the club.
In fact, he's become a key man of late, and is now set to be rewarded with a new contract sooner rather than later.
His current contract is set to run out in 2016, and the same report has claimed that he wants to remain at the club and is even prepared to take a pay cut in order to remain a Manchester United player.
It remains to be seen as to whether a deal will be agreed anytime soon, but it's one that certainly looks likely to be completed.
There's no doubt about it, Young deserves to be rewarded after proving his credentials under the Dutch regime. In truth, despite previous troubles at the club, he's been one of the standout players at the club throughout the course of the season.
If he continues his current form then he may well prove a key member under Van Gaal for some time yet. He must, however, continue to prove himself on a consistent basis and not become complacent.
