Welbeck signs new contract at Old Trafford

Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck has renewed his stay at Old Trafford until 2016, ending speculation whether the English international would depart from the club, following the signing of Robin Van Persie.

Sir Alex Ferguson told media: “Danny has been with the club since he was eight years old and has made fantastic progress in the last couple of years – first out on loan and last year as a regular in the first team.
“He has become an important player at international level as well, as the maturity of his performances at the European Championships showed. This year is another important one for him. He has a bright future ahead of him.”
