England international Marcus Rashford has signed a new deal with Manchester United that will keep him at the Premier League club until the summer of 2020.

The 18-year-old; who only made his Red Devils first-team debut against FC Midtjylland back in February, finished the 2015/16 season with a remarkable eight goals in 18 appearances for former manager Louis van Gaal’s side, including two assists.

After scoring twice on his debut at Old Trafford in the UEFA Europa League against the Danish outfit, Rashford has gone onto shine for both club and country, making his international debut against Australia on Friday – scoring the opening goal to become the Three Lions’ youngest ever goalscoring debutant at 18 years and 208 days.

His new contract with United is understood to be worth £20,000-a-week.

Meanwhile defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has also signed a new deal at the Premier League giants, extending his stay at Old Trafford until 2020 as well.

The 19-year-old, who had one year remaining on his previous deal, finished last term with 14 first-team appearances for United, including one assist.

Both Rashford and Borthwick-Jackson’s new contracts have an option to extend both deals by a further year.
