It seems as though Ritchie de Laet has impressed the manager as much as he impressed most of our fans given that he has just been offered a new three year contract extension.
We last saw him in the Wolves League Cup game but he previously put in impressive performances against Hull last season and Valencia in a pre-season friendly.
“Alex Ferguson told me I’m very close to the first team,” said de Laet. “There has been talk of me going out on loan but Sir Alex said I can’t leave as he may need me. The new contract is a surprise and fantastic news.”
