Saha signs new four-year Man United deal

Louis Saha has signed a lucrative extension to his contract which will keep him at Manchester United until 2010.

Although the France forward's previous deal was not due to expire for another two full seasons after the present campaign, the move represents confirmation of Saha's elevation to senior status within Sir Alex Ferguson's squad.

Having taken on the role of number one striker following the departure of Ruud van Nistelrooy in the summer, Saha has responded in superb fashion and the 28-year-old currently tops the United scoring charts with 12 goals.

'It is great news,' Saha told the club's website.

'I am really enjoying my time here and I wanted to show my commitment to Manchester United and also repay the faith that Sir Alex has shown in me.

'Hopefully we will have an exciting end to the season and add some silverware to the trophy room.'

Free of the injuries which cursed him for almost two years following his arrival from Fulham in January 2004, Saha has become a vitally important member of United's squad.

Only a fortnight ago, Ferguson admitted his heart was in his mouth every time the Frenchman went in for a challenge.

Although Saha continues to be troubled by bad luck - he missed the World Cup final through suspension and failed to convert a last-minute penalty at Celtic last month - his pace, power and aerial threat mean he is now established as one of the Premiership's top strikers.

With Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney also committing themselves to Old Trafford on long-term contracts recently, it means Ferguson has secured the services of his current strikeforce for the foreseeable future.

'I am delighted we have extended Louis' contract,' said Ferguson.

'We are happy to see Louis here until at least 2010 and to add him to the players who have recently signed new contracts like Cristiano and Wayne.

'We address the situation of players' contracts now and then in order to strengthen the club and it's great to add Louis to the list.

'Louis' form has been fantastic since he has come back from injury and he has scored 26 goals in that time.'
