Brandon Williams has signed a new contract at Manchester United that will keep him at the club until 2024 with the option to extend it by another year.
In a statement, United said: “Manchester United is delighted to announce that Brandon Williams has signed a new contract, which will keep him at the club until June 2024, with the option to extend for a further year.”
On his side, the player 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.”
Williams has enjoyed a breakthrough season at United, making a total of 33 appearances in all competition at left-back.
The 19-year-old, who is one of 12 academy products to have played for the first-team this season, is set to be first-choice for the rest of the campaign after Luke Shaw was ruled out with an ankle injury.
