Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden signs new deal with club until 2027


Phil Foden has signed a new deal with Manchester City that will keep the England midfielder at the club until 2027.

The previous contract for the 22-year-old was set to expire in 2024.

As one of City’s most promising academy players, Foden made his professional debut in November 2017 and scored 52 goals in 182 appearances.

It’s difficult for Foden to express how pleased he was to have signed this deal.

“It’s a fantasy realized. I have always supported City. I’ve been training here for a long time and even worked as a ballboy.

“I love this club so much, so it feels fantastic to know I will be a member of it until 2027.”

Foden, born in Stockport and has 18 appearances for England under his belt, has won 11 trophies with City, including four Premier League championships, four EFL Cups, and the FA Cup.

He also took the Premier League Young Player of the Season in the previous two seasons and PFA Young Player of the Year honors.

Foden thanked City manager Pep Guardiola for his excellent improvement over the last five years after the Spaniard made his debut when he was only 17.
