Manchester United’s Darron Gibson has revealed he hopes to talk to the club about a new contract in the summer, adding that he was happy at the club.

23 year old Gibson has a year left to run on his deal after this season but hopes to follow in the footsteps of fellow midfielders Darren Fletcher and Michael Carrick and sign a new deal.

Gibson’s future has been clouded in doubt since his international manager, Giovanni Trapattoni called for the Republic of Ireland international to leave the club in search of regular first team football.

Gibson has subsequently rubbished that idea, and insists he wants to stay at United and fight for a regular place in Alex Fergusons position.

“My contract ends in 2012 and although there have been no talks at the minute I am not too worried about,” said Gibson.

“I think they will maybe in the summer sit down and have a chat about a new deal and I am confident I can get one.

“I have no plans to leave Manchester United.

“My main goal is to try and get to play every week and be in there as a regular, but I think things are going well for me at the minute.

“Obviously I want to kick on and get in the team, but I am happy enough.”

Gibson also insisted he thought he had played well when given the chance this season.

“I am happy enough with my form, I have got no complaints,” added Gibson.

“Obviously I would like to have scored a few more goals, but I am enjoying it at the minute and hopefully I can kick on and play in the rest of the games that are left in the season.”
