Manchester United have announced that striker Wayne Rooney has signed a new five-year deal to stay at the club.

There are currently no details on the deal, but it puts an end to the speculation surrounding Rooney's future.

The Englishman, who has been troubled by off-field revelations surrounding his private life, announced his intention to leave the 18-time league champions earlier this week, citing lack of ambition within the club.

It appears that following discussions with manager Sir Alex Ferguson, and chief executive David Gill, Rooney has been convinced to pledge his future to the club.

It marks a remarkable turn of events, and Sir Alex Ferguson will also be delighted that he has convinced Rooney to stay, having convinced him to sign for the club when Rooney was just 18.

Now, Rooney must win over the fans, and his own teammates, that he has alienated with his previous comments.

However, it appears that he will be a Manchester United player for the foreseeable future.
