New contracts for Reds duo

Ben Amos and Paul Scholes have both signed new contracts to remain with Manchester United.

Promising young goalkeeper Amos has penned a three year deal which will run until at least 2015, while Scholes has signed until the end of the 2012/13 season.

Having made his Premier League debut for the Reds in January's victory over Stoke City and featured in all three 2011/12 Carling Cup ties, Amos has continued his impressive ascent through the club's ranks.

A commanding presence and an excellent communicator, Amos has made seven appearances during the course of his Reds career to date, keeping three clean sheets, and has also benefited from loan spells with Molde, Peterborough and Oldham Athletic.

Scholes, meanwhile, has completed the formalities of the one-year extension which Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed earlier this month.
