Rio Ferdinand wants to stay at United

Rio Ferdinand has dropped the clearest hint yet he intends to sign another contract at Manchester United.

The 34-year-old collected his sixth Premier League winners' medal Sunday and marked the occasion by slamming home the decisive goal in the 2-1 win over Swansea. It was the first time he had found the net in over five years yet it was accompanied by continuing doubts over his future.

With his contract about to expire, there have been suggestions Ferdinand may take up a lucrative offer from abroad. Outgoing United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has insisted that will not happen, and Ferdinand has said as much now too.

"Manchester United has a bright future," Ferdinand told MUTV. "The manager has left the club in great health and we are looking forward. We have a great number of good young players who are eager to win things and be successful and work hard.

"That is what the manager has instilled in these players. The work ethic has to continue if we are going to be successful. I would like to be part of that," he said.

With Ferguson standing down in the summer, senior figures in the United dressing room are going to be pivotal in ensuring the transition into the David Moyes era is a smooth one.

Now that Paul Scholes has also retired, no one has more experience than Ferdinand, with the exception of Ryan Giggs who has also signed a one-year deal.
