Official: Brandon Williams signs new Manchester United contract until 2022

by Leo Nieboer

Brandon Williams has signed a new long-term contract with Manchester United until 2022.

The 19-year-old left-back, who moved to Old Trafford in 2017, has played a fundamental role for Man United at various youth levels.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer handed the youngster his debut during the win over Rochdale in the EFL Cup ahead of Williams receiving his full debut against AZ Alkmaar.

The club confirmed on Thursday that the teenager had committed his long-term future to Old Trafford.

Solskjaer and Mike Phelan want to encourage as much of this talent as possible and Williams is certainly part of the future: nimble with the ball, smart off it, and blessed with excellent mileage down the flank. You would hope to see him kick on and receive more starts as the season degenerates under the weight of senior players failing.
