MANCHESTER, England(AP) Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs has signed a one-year contract extension, committing him to the English Premier League club for a 23rd straight season.

The only player to score in every Premier League season, the 38-year-old Giggs made his first-team debut in March 1991 and has never played for another club.

He beat Bobby Charlton's long-standing appearance record in the 2008 Champions League final and has played 898 matches for United, 140 more than Charlton.

United manager Alex Ferguson says "he has constantly reinvented himself, adapted to the changing nature of the game and retained that desire and hunger for success.''
