Hamilton signs new deal with United

Ethan Hamilton has become the latest member of the Manchester United Under-23s squad to sign a new contract with the club.

The Scottish midfielder has been an integral member of Ricky Sbragia's side, after playing for the Reserves coach at international level.

A hard-working individual who was shortlisted for the Denzil Haroun Player of the Year award, he was rewarded for his form with a place on the first-team bench for last season's Emirates FA Cup victory at Huddersfield Town.

Hamilton was nominated for the Denzil Haroun Player of the Year award in 2017/18.

Hamilton contributed goals in the Premier League International Cup and UEFA Youth League in 2017/18, but his game is usually about winning the ball in the middle of the park and using his strength and stamina to good effect.

After having the taste of life with Jose Mourinho's squad, he will be hoping to impress now he is back in training ahead of the new campaign.


Hamilton has joined Callum Whelan and Zak Dearnley in committing his future to the Reds this week and expressed his delight in putting pen to paper.

"Manchester United has always been my club so I’m delighted to be staying and extending my journey here," Ethan told "I know it’s a cliché but I just need to really knuckle down and train hard.

"You never know who is watching any training session, so my motto is show people what you can do and try to impress the coaches and manager every day. United is renowned for giving young players a chance to play in the first team if you are good enough, no matter what your age, and that’s my dream."
