Buttner ready to fight for United place

6 September 2013 17:35

Alexander Buttner has revealed that he is set to stay at Manchester United after David Moyes insisted that he is part of his plans.

United had been linked with a move for Everton's Leighton Baines and had that materialised, Buttner would have found himself third choice for the left-back slot.

However, Moyes' pursuit of Baines ended after the two clubs were unable to agree a fee for his services, leaving only Patrice Evra ahead of the 24-year-old.

Buttner explained that his manager had reassured him that he was still in his thoughts, and revealed that talks over a new contract are to begin soon.

"Last Wednesday I had a good meeting with our manager David Moyes," he told De Telegraaf. "He told me that I will play enough this year at Manchester United.

"He absolutely didn't want to let me go. He sees me as a full United player.

"The club now want to talk about a new deal. That shows a lot of appreciation."

Since his arrival from Vitesse, Buttner has only made five league appearances for United, and has yet to feature under Moyes this season.
