Left-back Luke Shaw has agreed a new five-year deal with Manchester United, worth a reported £150,000 per week.

The 23-year-old England international’s current contract was set to expire next summer.

Shaw’s progress has been disrupted by poor form and fitness issues, limiting him to only 75 appearances, but he has been a regular for United this season.

Recent performances earned Shaw – who joined United from Southampton for £27m in 2014 – an international recall.

Born in Kingston upon Thames, Shaw began his career as an eight-year old at Chelsea’s development centre in Guildford, but was not offered an academy place.

Shaw joined the Southampton Academy at the age of eight, and became a regular in the under-18 team from the age of 15.

His first association with the first team came in September 2011, when he was an unused substitute in a League Cup match against Preston North End.

On 27 June 2014, Shaw signed a four-year contract (with an option to extend for a further year) with Manchester United for an undisclosed fee thought to be in the region of £30 million, becoming the most expensive teenager in world football.

Shaw’s first experience of international football came in 2011, when he made six appearances for the England under-16 team.

He made his debut against Slovenia in February, before competing in the Montaigu Tournament in April and scoring his first international goal against Uruguay at the tournament.

He later made his debut for the under-17 team in August against Italy, and played in eight matches in a seven-month stint with the national team.
