Picture: Manchester United striker poses with boss after penning new deal

Manchester United Football Club gave a debut to a little-known teenager just over a year ago, who went by the name of James Wilson. He started against Hull City and scored two real poachers finishers to announce himself on the scene.

Since then things have somewhat fizzled out for Wilson, but today he has penned a new long-term contract at Old Trafford, keeping him at the club until at least June 2019.

Louis van Gaal said: “James is one of the brightest young English prospects and we are delighted he has signed a new contract. He is a very talented forward player and has a keen eye for goal. His development is continuing in the right direction and it is clear to see that he has a fine future ahead of him.”

James Wilson said: “I have been at United since I was seven years old and have thoroughly enjoyed my time here so far. Growing up at the club has been an incredible experience and I feel it stands me in good stead for continuing my development as a Manchester United player. I am delighted to have signed a new contract and look forward to playing a part in the team for many years to come.”
