Manchester United winger Nani signed a new four-year contract with the Premier League champions on Friday.

Nani's previous deal had two years still to run but his impressive form in the second half of the season has persuaded United manager Sir Alex Ferguson to offer the former Sporting Lisbon star an extended stay at Old Trafford.

The 23-year-old's new contract, which keeps him with United until June 2014, completes a remarkable revival from a player who looked to be on the way out of Old Trafford after criticising Ferguson earlier this term over his lacking of playing time.

Ferguson told United's official website: "Nani is an emerging talent within the team and has developed tremendously since joining the club.

"We are delighted he has signed a new contract and I am sure he will have a long and successful future here at Manchester United."

Nani added: "I am delighted to have signed a new contract. It has been like a dream come true to play for Manchester United.

"The coaching staff have taught me so much about the game and I'm playing alongside some of the best players in the world. I'm looking forward to winning many more trophies with this team."
