MANCHESTER, England (AP) Ryan Giggs, Manchester United’s most decorated player, has agreed to a one-year contract extension that will keep him at the club until June 2010.

The 35-year-old midfielder, whose contract was due to end in June, has made a record 787 appearances for United since making his debut in 1991. And he is still a key member of a team in contention for the Premier League, Champions League and two domestic cups.

“I feel fit and I’m enjoying my football more than ever,” Giggs said Thursday. “This is an exciting young team and the spirit is great in the dressing room. I want to be a part of that and achieve even more success.”

Giggs has won 10 Premier League titles, two Champions League titles, four F.A. Cups and two League Cups. His goal against West Ham on Sunday made him the only player to have scored in all 17 Premier League seasons.

He made a club-record 759th appearance in May’s Champions League final win over Chelsea.
