The 21-year-old stopper has signed a new deal until June 2023 with an option for a further year. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also confirmed on Monday that Bishop, who signed from Southend United a year ago, will shortly head out on loan to further enhance his experience.
After being congratulated by his manager, Nathan spoke to club media’s Stewart Gardner and revealed his aims for the future…
Nathan, you’ve signed a new deal with United – that must show the belief that the club has in you?
“Yes I hope so. It’s an amazing club and I’m delighted to be here, and to extend my stay even longer is just incredible.”
How’s it been for you so far? It must have been a bit of a whirlwind when you started, but how do you feel now?
“It’s crazy! [Smiles] The feeling I had the first day I walked through the door hasn’t changed. Driving down the lane at the training ground and coming in the door – it’s the same feeling every day, I’m just delighted to be here. It’s the biggest club in the world and it’s unbelievable to be around the players here. It’s a year since I joined and it literally feels the same.”
