Manchester United’s third-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant has signed a contract extension until the summer of 2021, the club have announced.

The 37-year-old former Burnley keeper has made just two appearances for United since moving from Stoke in 2018.

Grant is currently sidelined with an arm injury but has provided back-up to number one David De Gea and Sergio Romero.

Grant told the club’s website, www.manutd.com: “I love being here and clearly somebody likes me being here also, so it’s good to have it sorted. I’m just looking forward to being part of next year and part of watching the football club grow and move forward.”
