Paul Scholes is ready to put pen-to-paper on a new one-year deal at Old Trafford.

According to The Sun, The Manchester United veteran has hinted to Sir Alex Ferguson that he is keen to play on for another term after coming out of retirement earlier this season.

Scholes, who is also considering ending his international exile for this summer’s European championships, hasn’t set a date on finalising his plans, but has told Ferguson it will be before the end of the season.

Ferguson revealed the Old Trafford hierarchy have already drafted a one-year extension for Scholes, who would follow in the footsteps of Ryan Giggs who penned a new deal on Friday.

Scholes played his last international game eight years ago as England crashed out of Euro 2004 in the quarter-final to hosts Portugal on penalties.

He opted to call time prematurely on his international career, frustrated at being played out of position to accommodate the unsuccessful central midfield partnership of Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard.

But Scholes regrets his refusal to play for England in South Africa two years ago and would reportedly relish the opportunity to resurrect his England role under the new regime.
