Manchester United have confirmed that Brandon Williams has signed a new contract with the club that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2024, with the option of a further year.
Williams is one of 12 Academy graduates who have played for United in the Premier League this season and had already signed an improved deal back in October after making his first team debut.
The left-back has spoken to the official site about his happiness over getting to play for the club he has grown up supporting and what it means to him to be offered a new deal.
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.
Williams has made 33 appearances in all competitions this season, including starts against Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea, and scored a great goal against Sheffield United to start our comeback from 2-0 down.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken about Williams potential and his hopes for the player’s future.
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.
