Having started his career with El Nacional, the former right winger and now converted right back will join the Ecuadorian Serie A winners in July, what will be a homecoming for him. LDU Quito are currently seventh at the halfway point this season.

The 33-year-old had joined Manchester United from Wigan in 2009, and made 339 appearances in all competitions, even earning the armband in his decade-long stay.

He won two Premier League titles, two League Cups, the FA Cup and the Europa League in a successful period at Manchester.
