Anderson has today signed a contract extension with the club that keeps him here until 2015.

Following a falling out with the manager, a lengthy injury, a car accident after leaving a nightclub drawing the small hours during recovery, being linked with a return to Gremio, Anderson has finally got his place back in the team and has been performing well. His inclusion should only have a positive on Darren Fletcher and Michael Carrick, who have been struggling for form over the past few months at least, with competition for places increasing.

Anderson is very happy to have signed the new contract, believing this is the best place to be.

“This is the best club to be at and I would like to thank everyone for the great support I have received over the years,” Anderson said. “I am looking forward to winning many more trophies with this club and I am so pleased to have signed a new contract.”
