Nathan Bishop has put pen to paper on a new contract at Man United.
The young shot-stopper, Nathan Bishop, has signed sealed and delivered a new three-year agreement with Manchester United Football Club.
Having signed from Southend almost a year ago now, Bishop continues to impress coaches at youth level. Now, aged 21, United have shown real faith in the young Englishman, by handing the budding shot-stopper a new long-term deal at the Theatre of Dreams.
As United confirmed the news, the starlet was all-smiles alongside the Baby Faced Assassin, committing his future with the Red Devils until 2023.

For all their faults over the last half-decade, Manchester United have been incredible when it comes to developing goalkeepers.
From David de Gea to Sergio Romero and Dean Henderson, the Reds have this real knack at helping the men in between the sticks turn into truly world-class players. No doubt Bishop is hoping to follow in their footsteps.
The problem for Bishop is the people in front of him. Obviously, Romero is looking likely to be on his way out, though De Gea is still playing brilliantly while Henderson is pushing the Spaniard all the way.
Simply put, Bishop may find it hard to make his big breakthrough at the Theatre of Dreams. With that in mind, I wouldn’t be wholly surprised to see United send him out on loan at some point over the next month.
If the Reds can send him to an EFL League One or Championship outfit, and one who can promise him regular playing time that’d do wonders for his confidence.
Congratulations on the new deal, Nathan!
