London - Scott McTominay has signed a new contract with Manchester United that will keep him at the club until 2023, with the option to extend for a further year, the Premier League club announced on Monday.

"Manchester United has been my life since the age of five and playing for the club I've always supported is all I've ever wanted to do," the 22-year-old midfielder McTominay said in a statement on manutd.com.

"I'm still young and I'm learning all the time from the manager, his coaching staff and from the world-class players in the squad," added McTominay.

McTominay has made eight appearances for United this season but since the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as coach in mid-December has only featured twice -- in their 2-0 FA Cup win over Reading and as a late substitute in the 1-0 win at Tottenham.

That led to suggestions he could seek a loan move to gain more playing time but an injury to fellow midfielder Marouane Fellaini made that more unlikely.

Solskjaer said the Scotland international had a bright future at Old Trafford.

"Scott has been with the club from a very young age, he has progressed through our academy ranks and has made fantastic progress in the last couple of years," he said.

"Scott is a young midfielder and is constantly improving. He's an intelligent player and wants to learn all the time."
