The 18-year-old midfielder has been regularly involved with the first team under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Highly-rated midfielder James Garner has signed a long-term contract keeping him at Manchester United until at least 2022.

Fresh from turning 18 on Wednesday, the midfielder has put pen to paper on a new deal that includes the option to extend it by a further year.

Garner made his Premier League debut against Crystal Palace last month and has been involved with the first-team squad regularly under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

With the club since the age of eight, the England youth international was recently likened to captain-turned-coach Michael Carrick.

"I believe he's got the chance to have a great future," United caretaker boss Solskjaer said last month.

"He knows we believe in him, we've got great faith in him as the next Michael Carrick.

"I know he's young and I know it's not fair on kids to compare to great players like Michael was, but he's the same mould, he plays simple passes, plays through the lines."
