Cape Town - Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick is eager to open contract talks with the club as he looks set to see out his football career at Old Trafford.

The 33-year-old, who was forced to pull out of the England squad last night after suffering a groin injury, is out of contract in the summer and keen to extend his stay with the Red Devils.

“I haven’t expected it to be honest, with the injury,” Carrick told the Daily Star.

“It will probably be around Christmas or after that. Of course I want to stay, I’ve got nowhere else to go!”

Carrick, who has filled in at centre back for Louis van Gaal in United’s last two games, and the ex-West Ham star was full of praise for the Dutchman.

“He and his staff have been really supportive from the first day and I have a lot to thank them for because he had a lot on his plate coming in,” added Carrick.

“But he took his time to make sure I was alright and getting on the right track and thankfully I am back.”
