Nemanja Vidic has signed a new four-year contract with Manchester United.

The Premier League club announced last month that Vidic had agreed to extend his stay at Old Trafford and the Serbian centre-back has now officially sealed the deal.

The 28-year-old had been linked with moves to AC Milan and Real Madrid as reports claimed he was unhappy in Manchester, but he will now remain with Sir Alex Ferguson's team until 2014.

"We are delighted Nemanja has committed his future to the club," Ferguson said. "This kills all the silly speculation over the past few months. Nemanja has developed into one of the best centre-halves in Europe and we are pleased he will be here for many years to come."

I came to this club when I was young and have developed enormously with the help of the manager, coaching staff and my team-mates.

Vidic moved to United from Spartak Moscow for £7.2m in 2005 and has helped the team win three league titles, as well as the UEFA Champions League in 2008.

"I am very happy to sign this contract," he said. "I came to this club when I was young and have developed enormously with the help of the manager, coaching staff and my team-mates.

"During my time here we have had a lot of success and I look forward to continuing that success in the coming seasons."
