Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has extended a contract with the club as the Belgian will be tied at Old Trafford until June 2020.

Fellaini, whose previous deal was due to expire at the end of June, has signed a new deal with the option of a further year.

The 30-year-old, who had been expected to leave Old Trafford this summer, has thanked manager Jose Mourinho for his faith after signing.

“I made this decision because I am very happy here,” said Fellaini.

“I feel like this team, under Jose, still has a lot we want to achieve, I would like to say a special thank you to Jose for the faith he has always shown in me.”

Portuguese boss Mourinho, who never hid his ambition over the Belgium midfielder, has admitted that he wanted to keep Fellaini.

“I am very happy Marouane is staying with us,” said Mourinho. “I always believed in his desire to stay with the club and I am delighted that he has signed a new contract.”

Fellaini, who joined United in September 2013 from Everton during David Moyes’ era at Old Trafford, has since scored 20 goals in 156 appearances.
