Marouane Fellaini: Manchester United midfielder signs new two-year deal

Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini

Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini has signed a new two-year contract at Manchester United.

The 30-year-old, whose current deal expires on 30 June, was expected to leave Old Trafford this summer.

United manager Jose Mourinho said he wanted to keep Fellaini and the club have spent the past few months trying to persuade him to stay.

Fellaini has scored 20 goals in 156 appearances for United since his £27m move from Everton in 2013.

His new contract gives the option for a further season.

He became David Moyes' first significant signing after he replaced Sir Alex Ferguson, but endured two spells out of the team last season because of a knee injury that eventually required surgery.

Fellaini missed the FA Cup final defeat by Chelsea at Wembley in May with a muscle strain.
