Danny Welbeck has pledged his future to Manchester United: the young striker signed a new three-and-a-half-year deal. He’s been enjoying a good season so far, having started seven games and scored two goals.

Sir Alex: ‘We are delighted. We see Danny as one of the great young players who has emerged from the academy. He will have a terrific career and we are glad that he has placed his trust in us with his future.”

Danny Welbeck: “I am really happy, there was never a doubt that this is where I want to be. I am enjoying every minute and learning so much from all the great players that are here. I would like to thank Sir Alex, the club and the fans for all their support.”

He earned that deal in my opinion as he showed plenty of talent this season but he still has plenty of work to do. He needs to be more agile and he needs to improve his first touch – a lot. Hopefully he will realise his full potential though because he could really have a great future ahead of him.
