Veteran midfielder Paul Scholes will definitely play on for one more season, hoping to end his career by helping Manchester United regain the Premier League title.

The 37-year-old former England international initially retired at the end of last season, but was tempted back to try and help the Red Devils fend off the challenge of Manchester City, who were eventually crowned champions on a dramatic final day of the campaign.

Manager Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed to MUTV: "It has been done. He is staying.

"I am delighted. He knew he had made a mistake. He now realises if he plays 25 or 30 games next season, they will be of real quality.

"I think this will be Paul's last season. We know him very well. We have had him since he was a kid and we know how to use him."

Scholes returned to action in January in the 3-2 FA Cup derby win at the Etihad Stadium and went on to score four goals in 21 appearances, as, for once, United finished the campaign without silverware.
