Van der Sar set for new United deal
Veteran Manchester United keeper Edwin van der Sar looks set to sign a new one-year contract to keep him with the Red Devils until June 2011.
Quoted in the News of the World, he said: "I would like to keep on playing so I have decided to sign another contract.
"The club want me to stay and I’m happy here. My fitness is good and I feel I can carry on playing for United."
Van der Sar returned to the Red Devils’ first team last month a spell out through injury and compassionate leave following his wife’s suspected brain haemorrhage.
"It’s been a hard time for all the family and when something like this happens it’s a tough situation," he said.
"Luckily I was back in Holland when it happened because I was injured and it meant that I could be with her in hospital.
"It’s been a difficult period, but I’m happy things are improving at home."
