The 20-year-old scored two goals in 16 appearances last term having joined from Kettering at the beginning of the 2012/13 season and was delighted when new manager James Beattie asked him to stay.

Gray said: "He spent hours with me on the training ground last season trying to improve me so I was delighted to hear he wanted to sign me for next season."

He added: "I was pleased with my first season. Next year I won't be an unknown player in the Football League because I'll have that little bit of experience behind me. There will probably be a bit more pressure on me but I can't wait for the season to start."

Gray has also won international recognition at Under-21 level with Northern Ireland and he joins George Miller, Ian Dunbavin, Dean Winnard and Laurence Wilson in agreeing contract extensions with the club.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
