Danny Welbeck has reportedly agree to sign a new long-term deal with Manchester United, and is set to treble his current salary after an impressive season.

The 21-year-old striker has scored 12 goals during his first full season in the United first-team, and he could yet end the campaign with a maiden Premier League title.

Welbeck's performances appear to have been enough to earn him an improved deal with United, while he may even be included in the England squad for Euro 2012 this summer.

According to, Welbeck has signed new £45,000-a-week contract that will keep him at Old Trafford for another five years, with his current deal set to expire next summer.

Welbeck has established himself as a first-choice strike partner for Wayne Rooney this term, condemning the likes of Dimitar Berbatov and Javier Hernandez to a place on the Manchester United bench.

The youngster benefitted from a spell on loan with Sunderland last year, and is likely to play a significant role for Sir Alex Ferguson's side in the future.
