Manchester United winger Antonio Valencia has agreed a new four-year contract extension to stay at the Premier League champions.

The 25-year-old has made a huge impression at the club since moving from Wigan Athletic for £16million two years ago.

The Ecuador international missed a large part of last season with a broken left ankle but returned to help United win a record 19th league title and into the Champions League final.

Valencia, who has scored 10 goals in 69 appearances for United, is happy to have been rewarded with a new contract ahead of the 2011/12 season.

“I am delighted to stay at United,” Valencia told the club’s website.

“Since my first day at Carrington, I have been happy here. I hope that I can continue to develop as a player.

“I am looking forward to making my contribution to helping this squad compete for more trophies.”

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson added: “Antonio has made a fantastic contribution since his arrival. His speed, crossing ability and versatility have been a big asset for us.

“He has a quiet, unassuming way of going about his business, which is underlined by great strength of character as his recovery from such a bad injury last season proves.”
