MANCHESTER, England (AP) — England midfielder Michael Carrick has extended his contract with Manchester United, keeping him at the club until June 2015 with an option of a further year.

Carrick has established himself as an integral part of the United team since joining from Tottenham in 2006.

United manager David Moyes says "Michael is a great reader of the game and has excellent passing ability. He is an exceptional man and a true professional."

In his seven years at United, the 32-year-old Carrick has won five Premier League titles and the Champions League in 2008.

In a club statement released Friday, Carrick says "I have won many trophies in my years playing here and I am looking forward to achieving more in the future."
