Ireland U21 Keeper Lands New Contract With Man Utd

Ireland U21 goalkeeper Kieran O'Hara has been handed a new contract by Man Utd.

The 21-year-old has been a regular for the club's reserves this season. He has also been part of Jose Mourinho's squads for Champions League and Europa League games. His new deal with the club will run until 2020.

O'Hara, who has been at Man Utd since the age of eight, told the club website:

Since I joined United, it has been everything I expected it to be. The club gives you all the guidance that you need from experienced coaches to improve every single day.

But I know that the hard work has just started and that I need to continue to listen and give everything in training and the matches we have coming up. I know I’m at the right place to continue my development as a young player and I’m thrilled to have signed a new contract.

Born in Manchester, O'Hara qualifies to play for Ireland through his father's parents who are from Galway. He caught the attention of Ireland U21 manager Noel King while on loan at League Two side Morecambe last season.
