Valencia, who joined United from Wigan in 2009, had two years remaining on his current deal. Since joining he has made 69 appearances for the club, scoring 10 goals winning both the Premiership and the Carling Cup once.
“He has a quiet, unassuming way of going about his business, which is underlined by great strength of character – as his recovery from such a bad injury last season proves.”
Valencia said: “I am delighted to stay at United. Since my first day at Carrington, I have been happy here. I hope that I can continue to develop as a player.
“I am looking forward to making my contribution to helping this squad compete for more trophies.”
I for one am glad that he has signed a new contract. Since joining he has played a major role in Manchester United’s successes.
