Antonio Valencia refused to leave Manchester United and join Newcastle or Fulham Sun.
The captain of the United States has completely erupted in the last few months and is about to leave when his contract expires in the summer.
Valencia was offered the opportunity to leave United in the day's term with Newcastle and Fulham both keen on the 33-year-old.
However, a veteran defender instead decided to see the rest of the season at Old Trafford before evaluating his future in the summer.
Valencia lost its position to team veteran Ashley Young, who was offered a new 12-month deal, unlike international Ecuador.
Valencia has only five games in the Premier League this season, and since the beginning of October has only four performances in all competitions.
