Belgium international midfielder Marouane Fellaini has pledged his future to Manchester United by signing a new two-year contract with the Old Trafford club.

The 30-year-old joined the Red Devils in the summer of 2013 after spending five years with Everton, and has since scored 20 goals in 156 appearances for United in all competitions.

Fellaini has helped his current club to success in the FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League and is confident that there is more to come from the men from Manchester in the coming campaigns.

He told his club's official website: "I am pleased to be continuing my journey as a Manchester United player.

"I made this decision because I am very happy here. Also, I feel like this team, under Jose Mourinho, still has a lot we want to achieve.

"I would like to say a special thank you to Jose for the faith he has always shown in me. My focus now is on the World Cup and (then) I am looking forward to a successful season ahead."

United have already been active in the summer transfer market, snapping up Portuguese defender Diogo Dalot from FC Porto and Brazilian midfielder Fed from Ukrainian outfit Shakhtar Donetsk.

Last season Mourinho's side finished in second place in the Premier League last season, while they were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea in the FA Cup final and knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage by Sevilla.

United are 40/1 to win the Premier League title next season, with Liverpool available at 7/4 and Arsenal priced at 50/1.
