Manchester United and England legend Paul Scholes has signed a four-year deal to become a pundit for BT Sport.

The ex-midfielder, who retired from playing for the second time just over a year ago, will join the panel of analysts for exclusively live matches in the Barclays Premier League from the start of this season.

Scholes, who has two UEFA Champions League winners medals, will also work as a pundit covering the leading European football competition from the start of the 2015-16 season, when BT Sport will become the home of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.

Scholes will join other former and current Manchester United stars working for BT Sport, including Rio Ferdinand, now with QPR, and Robin Van Persie, who are ambassadors for the channels. Ex-teammate Owen Hargreaves is a fellow pundit and Michael Owen is co-commentator.
