MANCHESTER, England (AP) - Manchester United says defender Chris Smalling has signed a new contract to keep him at the club until 2019.

The 25-year-old Smalling, who has won the English Premier League twice and played 147 times since signing for United in 2010, says, “this is a very exciting time to be at Manchester United.”

United manager Louis van Gaal says England international Smalling “has improved and developed immensely during the short time that I have been at the club,” and described him as “an integral part of the first-team squad.”
