Antonio Valencia signed for Manchester United in 2009

Manchester United captain Antonio Valencia looks likely to leave the club at the end of the season after 10 years at Old Trafford.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says the Ecuador international and the club have yet to agree to a one-year contract extension, which reportedly needs to be triggered by Friday.

Valencia, who is currently out with a calf injury, was signed from Wigan in 2009 and switched from being a winger under former manager Alex Ferguson to a right back in recent years.

Solskjaer said the 33-year-old Valencia "has had a fantastic career here at Man United and in England. He's one of the Premier League winners left in the dressing room."

Earlier, United made light of its injury crisis by winning 3-1 at Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Wednesday, with Romelu Lukaku scoring two of the goals on his return to the team.

With Rashford not fit to start and wide players Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard also injured, United were without its entire first-choice front three as well as key midfielders Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera.

Lukaku recovered from missing a glorious early chance to score in each half and help keep United a point behind fourth-place Arsenal in the fight for Champions League qualification. A further goal from Ashley Young, after Joel Ward had responded for 14th-place Palace, ensured United continued the momentum it will hope to carry into next week's Champions League match at Paris Saint-Germain.

United trail 2-0 from the first leg but will have to overcome a tricky challenge against Southampton on Sunday at Old Trafford before it.
