"Manchester United has been my life since the age of five and playing for the club I've always supported is all I've ever wanted to do," the 22-year-old midfielder McTominay said in a statement on manutd.com.

"I'm still young and I'm learning all the time from the manager, his coaching staff and from the world-class players in the squad," added McTominay.

McTominay has made eight appearances for United this season but since the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as coach in mid-December has only featured twice – in their 2-0 FA Cup win over Reading and as a late substitute in the 1-0 win at Tottenham.

That led to suggestions he could seek a loan move to gain more playing time but an injury to fellow midfielder Marouane Fellaini made that more unlikely.

Solskjaer said the Scotland international had a bright future at Old Trafford.

"Scott has been with the club from a very young age, he has progressed through our academy ranks and has made fantastic progress in the last couple of years," he said.

"Scott is a young midfielder and is constantly improving. He's an intelligent player and wants to learn all the time."
