Manchester United duo extend contracts

Manchester United have confirmed that Paul Scholes and Ben Amos have extended their contracts at Old Trafford.

Veteran midfielder Scholes came out of retirement in January to feature heavily for the Red Devils in the second half of the season, and a new one-year contract was agreed upon last month.

Scholes has put pen-to-paper on the contract after sorting out all formalities, and will look to play a part in United’s efforts to regain their Premier League crown from rivals Manchester City next term.

Amos meanwhile has signed a three-year extension with Sir Alex Ferguson’s men as a reward for impressive showings.

Amos has made seven appearances for the United first-team so far, and has also starred in loan spells at Molde, Peterborough and Oldham.

The youngster will look to provide competition to David De Gea and Anders Lindegaard in the first-team squad next season.
