Keane, whose twin brother Michael has also come the youth system at the club, had agreed to pledge his future to the club in July after a series of talks with Old Trafford officials.

And the forward, who attracted interest from the Chelsea and Tottenham, as well as Serie A pair AC Milan and Inter, has now put pen to paper on a new contract.

Keane made his United debut off the bench in a 3-2 defeat to Blackburn Rovers in December 2011, and has since spent time on loan with Wigan and QPR, helping Harry Redknapp's side secure promotion back to the Premier League last season.

Lawrence, meanwhile, made his United first-team breakthrough last season after Ryan Giggs took over as head coach following the sacking of David Moyes.

The Welsh winger made his full debut in a 3-1 win against Hull City in May and was replaced by Giggs in the second half.

The 20-year-old was called up to the senior Wales squad to face the Netherlands prior to the World Cup in June but did not feature.

Lawrence also spent time on loan at Carlisle United and Yeovil Town last season.
