Manchester United defender John O'Shea has signed a three-year extension to his current contract.

The new deal means the 26-year-old Republic of Ireland international will remain at the club until 2012.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said: "John has developed here and is regarded as one of the more experienced players.

"He has proved through his personality and professionalism he is a credit to the club."

The Waterford-born player's versatility means he has become an integral part of the United squad and can play either centre-half, full-back or in central midfield.

"I would like to thank the boss, the staff and the fans for their continued support."
