Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has signed a new one-year contract extension to remain at the club until the end of the 2012-2013 season.
After announcing his retirement at the end of last season, Scholes made a dramatic return against Manchester City in the third round of the FA Cup in early January. He was brought back to add stability and experience to the injury stricken United midfielder. He proved he still had what it takes to play at the highest level as he was a key figure for the Red Devils in their Premier League title challenge this season scoring four goals in sixteen appearances.
After making his debut in the 1994-95 season as a teenager, Scholes will line out for his 18th season at the Theatre of Dreams this August.
The 37-year old has won ten Premier League titles, three FA Cups and two Champions Leagues over his career at Old Trafford.
Scholes has made 696 appearances for Man Utd scoring 154 goals.
