Manchester United have handed Antonio Valencia a new three year contract, ending any rumours of an Old Trafford exit under Louis van Gaal, Express reports.

The winger has been linked with a move away from the club in recent weeks due to his failure to reproduce his form from previous seasons.

However, the 28-year-old signed a contract that will keep him at the club and is now seen as part of the United set up under the current Netherlands boss.
