Luke Shaw ‘agrees new long-term Man Utd contract’ in huge boost as Erik ten Hag builds for future

But he has successfully negotiated an extension for a further four years.

And the news will come as a good boost for manager Erik ten Hag as he continues to shape his squad for the long-term.

Shaw, 27, only signed in December

That was when United triggered the option to add an extra 12 months to his deal.

But they have wasted no time in tying down the England full-back despite the uncertainty over the ownership of the club.

David De Gea and Marcus Rashford are also in ongoing talks over new deals, too.

Defender Shaw joined the Red Devils from Southampton in 2014 in a record £30million move.

However, injury troubles and fall-outs with previous managers, especially Jose Mourinho, limited his progression.

But he is now the first-choice left-back ahead of Tyrell Malacia – though Shaw has also filled in superbly at centre-backwhen required.

Ten Hag has also been impressed by his character and personality off the pitch and wants him to be part of the new era.

England boss Gareth Southgate is similarly pleased with Shaw and was delighted he stuck with the squad during the recent international break despite his red card in Italy ruling him out of the game against Ukraine.

Shaw has played 35 times for United across all competitions this season, including 90 minutes in the Carabao Cup final win – chipping in with one goal and six assists.

The Red Devils still have hopes of winning the FA Cup and Europa League while the main aim in the Premier League is to secure a top-four finish.

Ten Hag’s side face a hectic April with nine matches, starting with a trip to Newcastle on Sunday before facing Sevilla in the Europa League quarter-finals and going away to Tottenham.
