Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand admits that he wants to extend his stay at Old Trafford beyond the end of the season.

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has revealed that he is prepared to wait until the end of the season to begin discussions over a new deal.

The 34-year-old's contract at Old Trafford expires at the end of the season but despite no talks being opened regarding a new deal, Ferdinand has insisted that he takes heart from the fact that the club wait until the season has finished to discuss terms with other senior players.

Ferdinand told The Sun: "Of course I would want to stay, 100%, provided I'm still playing like I am and feeling as good as I am at the moment.

"Manchester United is a great club, the number one, and you would never want to play anywhere else if you can still play for them.

"We are not in discussions about a new contract at the moment and I'm fine with that because of the understanding that I have with the manager. I don't expect to be treated any different to the other older players like Giggsy or Scholesy, who normally sign on again at the end of the season."

Ferdinand has made 418 appearances for Manchester United.
