Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has confirmed his expected departure from the club.

The 29-year-old's deal expires at the end of the season and he is believed to have committed to Paris St Germain over another option.

There had been no official word until Saturday, though, when Herrara posted a goodbye to United's fans via the club's official Twitter account.

"There is red in my heart, I knew it from the first time I played here and in the moment I started to wear it," Herrera said.

"A club with thousands of fans who respect and remember all the players who give everything. I felt special when I heard my name chanted. I felt proud when the fans decided I was part of this incredible history.

"Every time I represented this club, in every game, in wins and losses, even when I couldn't help from the grass, I understood what this club means.

"I am going to remember each of the almost 200 matches that I have played with this jersey. Because playing for the greatest club in England, has been a true honour. Thanks for these five amazing years."

Mike Phelan has been appointed Manchester United's permanent assistant manager on a three-year contract, the club have announced.

Phelan, who served as Sir Alex Ferguson's number two at United before departing shortly after the Scot in 2013, returned to the club alongside Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in December last year.

The pair came in on a deal until the end of the season, but Solskjaer was named the permanent successor to Jose Mourinho in March, and now Phelan has followed the Norwegian in committing to the club where he made more than 100 appearances between 1989 and 1994.

"I am thrilled to be back as assistant manager," Phelan said.
