Gibson hopes for new deal

22 June 2009 08:53
Darron Gibson is keen to sign a new contract at Manchester United and silence speculation surrounding his future. The 21-year-old midfielder made the breakthrough at Old Trafford last season, forcing his way into Sir Alex Ferguson's plans on a regular basis. He is also an established part of the Republic of Ireland set-up and has seen his profile rise considerably over the course of the last 12 months. Having caught the eye with a number of assured performances, it has come as no surprise that he currently finds himself at the centre of much transfer talk. A possible move to Everton has been touted, despite Gibson's insistence that he has no desire to leave United. He has now admitted that he hopes to open contract talks with the Red Devils this summer, allowing him to prolong his stay at the Theatre of Dreams. "My contract is coming to an end so, hopefully, at the end of the month I'll be signing a new one," said Gibson. "My current deal ends at the end of next season but, normally, a player would enter into new contract talks at the end of this month. "I've been told that a few clubs had expressed an interest in signing me, but I want to give it a good push and have a proper go at it next season before I decide to go anywhere else."
