Will Fish is the latest The Manchester United youngster signs a new long-term deal with the club, extending his stay at Old Trafford until 2025.

This follows the announcement on Tuesday that Zidane Iqbal had signed a new contract of the same length, running until 2025 with an option for a further year.

Fish, a 19-year-old centre-back, has played once for Manchester United for the first-team and was capped for England through to the Under-19s.

He was briefly loaned out by the Red Devils and played twice for Stockport County in the National League last season.

The defender lacks experience but Manchester United clearly feel he could still have a future with them and he will have at least three years left on the contract.

The club’s statement on the new contract read: “Everyone at Manchester United is looking forward to the 19-year-old candidate continuing his development at the club in the months and years to come.”

Despite Fish only playing at Stockport twice in half a season, United’s academy leader Nick Cox insisted the centre-back’s time was well spent.

“Will has learned a lot over the past few months and has had a number of experiences that will stand him in good stead throughout his career,” said Cox.

“He loved his time at Stockport County and we have clearly seen how much Will has developed both physically and mentally over the past few months.

“There are many different perspectives on loans and people often just look at the number of games played, but there is a lot more going on behind the scenes. To train every day in a first-team environment and learn from seasoned professionals at just 18 is a fantastic opportunity.”
