Antonio Valencia has signed a new four-year deal at Manchester United FC that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2015.
Ecuadorean international Valencia, 25, joined the Premier League champions from Wigan Athletic FC in 2009. The right-winger has made 69 appearances and scored ten goals in two campaigns at United.
He missed much of last season through injury, but returned in March to help United lift their record-breaking 19th English title before playing 90 minutes in the UEFA Champions League final defeat at the hands of FC Barcelona.
"I am delighted to stay at United," said Valencia. "Since my first day at Carrington [United's training ground], I have been happy here and I hope that I can continue to develop as a player. I am looking forward to making my contribution to help this squad compete for more trophies."
United manager 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."
