Michael Carrick has signed a one-year extension with Manchester United until 2015.

"It is great to extend my contract at this great club," Carrick told the club website. "The club has gone through a few changes and working under David Moyes has been fantastic. I have won many trophies in my years playing here and I am looking forward to achieving more in the future."

Moyes added: "During my short time at the club it hasn’t been hard to notice that Michael is a great reader of the game and has excellent passing ability. He is an exceptional man and a true professional and it’s great that he has committed himself to the club."

Carrick's United career

Despite experiencing a poor season, Carrick has arguably been United's most consistent performer over the last two years.

One of Sir Alex Ferguson's most important signings at the time of his arrival in 2006, the 32-year-old has won five Premier League titles, a European Cup, the League Cup and the Club World Cup in seven seasons with the champions.

Carrick, who is sidelined through injury until Christmas, has made 334 appearances for United and scored 21 goals.

His new deal follows the five-year contract agreed with Nani, another player whose deal was due to expire in 2014. Fabio da Silva, Nemanja Vidić, Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra and Ryan Giggs' contracts all end in the summer.
