Manchester United FC have agreed new contracts with England defenders Gary and Phil Neville until 2009.
Manchester United FC have agreed new five-year contracts with brothers Gary and Phil Neville.

American tour
Gary, 29, and Phil, 27, put pen to paper on the extended deals before heading off with the rest of the United squad on their pre-season tour of the United States. The England duo have been with the Premiership club for their entire professional careers, after coming through the youth ranks at Old Trafford.

Club and country
Right-back Gary first broke into the United first team in 1992 while Phil, who can play at full-back or as a holding midfield player, made his debut two-and-a-half years later. The pair have been regularly involved for club and country ever since, and, in 1996, became the first brothers to play together for England together Bobby and Jack Charlton in the 1960s.
