Centre back has just had one of his best-ever campaigns in the north west.
New Manchester United manager David Moyes has been given a huge boost with the news that veteran defender Rio Ferdinand will shortly agree a new contract with the Premier League champions, says the Guardian.
The highly experienced central defender recently decided to retire from international football after having made 81 appearances for the Three Lions in an effort to prolong his club career at Old Trafford.
And now it is expected that the 34-year-old will put pen to paper on a new one-year rolling contract that will run until the end of June 2014, with the player’s current deal with the Red Devils set to expire at the end of next month.
All of which will come as a massive relief to Moyes, who has just taken over from retiring United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, especially given the outstanding form that Ferdinand has displayed at the back for the club this season as they strolled to a record-breaking 20th top-flight title, and 13th Premier League crown overall.
Ferdinand featured in 28 Premier League matches and 34 in all competitions this campaign for United.
