Tyler Blackett signs new Manchester United deal - Official Manchester United Website

Tyler Blackett has signed a new contract at Manchester United which keeps him at the club until at least June 2017, with an option to extend for a further year.

The young English defender, 20, came through the ranks of the Academy system. He has made 10 appearances since his debut against Swansea City on the opening day of this season.

Louis van Gaal said: "I am delighted that Tyler has signed a new contract. He is another young player that has risen through the Academy system to break into the first-team squad this season. Tyler has great potential and I believe he is at the right club to continue his development and progression to become a great defender."

Blackett added: "I'm thrilled to have signed my new contract. I have supported United all my life and have been here since I was eight years old. To come through the Academy and make my debut this season was a dream come true. I want to keep improving within the first-team squad with the help of the manager, coaches and the players around me."
Futures here for all 4 of Lingard, Blackett, McNair and James still up in the air. Blackett and James especially. Deserved rewards for their progress though. Suspect if good offers came in, the club would be willing to sell.
