Manchester United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak has signed a two-year contract extension which will keep him at the club until 2012.

Empics / Dan HamburyTomasz Kuszczak: Signed for the club permanently in summer of 2007.
The 26-year-old, who moved to Old Trafford from West Brom on a permanent deal last year after a successful season-long loan, still had two years on his contract left to run.

Kuszczak said: "For the club to offer me an extension when I still have two years left shows the trust and support that I have from the club and Sir Alex Ferguson.

"I am so happy as I have had a great time so far but there is still so much to prove and I want to continue working hard to ensure my position within this great team."

Ferguson said: "We always like to sit down with all our young players as we want to look ahead and protect our future.

"Top goalkeepers are hard to find and I believe we have three of the best here and by securing Tomasz's future we can consolidate ours."
