New contract: Manchester United's Gary Neville

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has hinted that Gary Neville will be offered a one-year contract extension by the club this summer.

Ferguson has been impressed by the way Neville has fought back from a career-threatening ankle injury and believes the 35-year-old can play for another season at Old Trafford.

The United boss also says Neville's invaluable experience will help his squad win their fourth successive Barclays Premier League title.

''I can certainly see Gary playing on next season,' said Fergie. 'He's a player of great willpower. He's got where he is in life because he has the will to do it.

'When you're out of the game for a-year-and-a-half like he was, it's not easy to come back. We don't play him every week because of the nature of his body. But he's showing incredible drive for a 35-year-old. I think he's a great example.'
