(REUTERS) - France left back Patrice Evra has signed a contract to stay at Manchester United for another year, extending his Old Trafford career to a 10th season, the Premier League club said on Friday.
There had been media speculation he would leave but with two experienced defenders, Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand, already departing, United were "delighted" to announce on their website (www.manutd.com) that Evra will remain at the club.
The Frenchman, who was 33 last week, joined United from AS Monaco in 2006 and has made 379 appearances for the club, winning 10 major honours.
