Van Nistelrooij signs new deal

Ruud van Nistelrooij has signed a new contract with Manchester United FC, committing his future to the English champions until June 2008.

Key figure
The 27-year-old Netherlands striker is one of the key figures in Sir Alex Ferguson's side, having scored a remarkable 98 goals in 129 first-team appearances for United. Little wonder Ferguson, who himself signed a new 12-month rolling contract yesterday, described the agreement as "great news for the club and the fans".

Player of the year
After arriving at Old Trafford in a €30m deal from PSV Eindhoven in summer 2001, he ended his first season in England as his fellow professionals' Player of the Year, having finished the top scorer in the UEFA Champions League with ten goals as United reached the semi-finals. Last season he scored 44 goals in all competitions as United won the Premiership.

'New challenges'
"I am delighted to commit my future to the club," said Van Nistelrooij. "I have grown very fond of Manchester United, the fans are amazing. I have had some great moments here but I want to continue to give the club my best, and I am looking forward to new challenges on the pitch."
