Anderson commits to United

Manchester United midfielder Anderson has been rewarded for his improved form following a lengthy injury with a new four-and-a-half year contract at Old Trafford.

Anderson ruptured his cruciate ligament in a game against West Ham in February and since returning to action in September has made four Premier League starts.

The midfielder, signed from Porto in 2007, has produced some encouraging performances, not least in Monday night's 1-0 win over Arsenal when he outshone Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas.

"This is the best club to be at and I would like to thank everyone for the great support I have received over the years," Anderson told the club's official website. "I am looking forward to winning many more trophies with this club and I am so pleased to have signed a new contract."

Sir Alex Ferguson said: "We are delighted Anderson has signed a new contract. Anderson has developed tremendously since joining the club and he has fantastic potential at only 22 years of age, he is going to be a really top player."

Wayne Rooney signed a new contract at United in October after initially indicating he wished to leave the club, while captain Nemanja Vidic also committed his future to the club during the summer.
