Chris Smalling is expected to sign a new contract with Manchester United despite speculation about his future at Old Trafford, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Star is reporting that the 28-year-old defender is close to penning a new deal with the Red Devils despite having been linked with a move away from the club.

Smalling has less than a year left on his current deal, which is set to expire at the end of this season.

The same story claims that Smalling will be offered a new deal by the Red Devils in the coming weeks, although he has not yet been handed a new deal.

The article credits Arsenal with an interest in signing the English defender, but it is claimed that the Red Devils have no intention of letting the centre-half leave the club.

The 28-year-old has been a regular fixture in the Manchester United team so far this season, scoring one goal in four Premier League starts for Jose Mourinho’s men.

He played the full 90 minutes as the Red Devils were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by Wolves in front of their home fans in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Manchester United will host Derby County in the third round of the League Cup on Tuesday night.
