Mancunian left-back Brandon Williams has signed a new contract which will keep him at Manchester United until June 2024, with the option to extend for a further year.

Williams, who joined United at the age of seven, is one of 12 Academy graduates who have featured for the club in the Premier League this season. The England Under-20 international has made 33 appearances for the first team after starring for the youth and reserve sides.

After signing the contract, the 19-year-old, said: “Signing this contract is another really proud moment for myself and my family. Having been at Manchester United since I was seven years old, it’s genuinely a dream come true to be playing in the first team. It has taken a huge amount of hard work to reach this point and it has been really special for me to break through into the squad.

“I’ve learned a lot throughout the season from the manager, his coaching staff and my team-mates and I want to repay the trust that they have all shown in me. I know that everyone at the club is working really hard every day to achieve success in the coming years and I am really excited to be a part of that.”

His manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer added: “Brandon has had an excellent first season, so we are delighted that he has signed a new contract. This new deal is a real testament to his hard work and the progress that he has made since his debut.

“Brandon never looked back after stepping up from the academy and having come all the way through the system he understands what it means to play for Manchester United. He has all of the attributes required to be a member of this exciting young squad. He will continue to learn every day in training and we look forward to watching him develop over the coming seasons.”
