Northern Ireland under-21 midfielder Ethan Galbraith signs new contract with Manchester United

Manchester United midfielder Ethan Galbraith has signed a new contract with the Premier League giants that will keep him at Old Trafford until June 2023.

The Red Devils also have the option to extend the deal of the 19-year-old for a further twelve months.

Galbraith, who made his United debut in a 2-1 Europa League victory over Astana last season, has been training regularly with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-team squad and looks destined to make further strides at Old Trafford this term. 

Former Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill handed Galbraith his full international debut against Luxembourg in September last year and the gifted teenager was on the bench for the national team again in the recent 5-1 home defeat to Norway.

The former Linfield youngster, who has been at the Theatre of Dreams for three years, has been out of action recently with a foot injury, but he returned for United’s under-23 side last week and scored a 97th minute penalty to secure a 2-1 win for Neil Wood’s squad over Everton.
