Manchester United have activated a clause in Antonio Valencia's contract to extend his stay at the club for another year.
Valencia, who joined the club from the Latics in 2009, has made 271 appearances to date, winning six trophies with the club in that period.
Jose Mourinho's claims of Valencia being the best right back in the world might be a little over the top but will do wonders for the player's confidence.
One of the nicest surprises of the Premier League so far is Peter Crouch's "resurrection" as the 35-year-old veteran scored three games in a row after being benched nearly entire season.
The Portuguese manager has been a long-term admirer of the South American and has revealed he attempted to sign the Ecuadorian whilst managing Real Madrid.
Normally a right back, Matteo Darmian has deputised in Shaw's absence on the opposite side, with Daley Blind also filling in on occasions.

"Stoke have got some very good players and we know it's probably not the same going there now as it was seven or eight years ago", Carrick said.
Mourinho said: "I don't think it is a reward, I don't see it in this perspective".
Shaw faces fierce competition then to win his place back, but still has plenty of time in which to prove his worth before the season comes to a close - with United competing on four fronts.
The 22-year-old has been one of the club's star performers this season and his efforts have not gone unnoticed with Manchester United scouts making regular checks on the £25m-rated star.
Mkhitaryan has been one of Manchester United's better players in recent weeks, and he will continue to find himself in the starting XI until his form drops.
"I think Mark Hughes has come away from the sort of long throw-ins and set-plays that put you constantly under pressure in your own box".
