Phil Foden has signed a new contract with Manchester City, extending his stay at the Etihad until 2027.
The 22-year-old’s previous contract, which expired in 2024, has drawn up new terms for a further three years after negotiations last year.
Foden has become an integral part of Pep Guardiola’s squad since graduating from City’s academy and has won four Premier League titles despite his young age.
The England international has been named PFA Young Player of the Year for the past two seasons and is now considered one of the highest paid young players in European football.
“It’s hard to put into words how happy I am to have signed this contract. It’s a dream come true,” Foden said.
“I’ve been a City fan all my life. I’ve been training here for so many years and was even a ball boy. I love this club so much so knowing that I’ll be a part of it until 2027 feels great.
“I’ve improved a lot over the past few years and that’s thanks in large part to Pep and his staff who guide me every day on the training ground.
“Working with them gives me the best chance to improve even more and become the best player I can be.
“With the squad we have here, I feel like I can keep learning and winning trophies. Those are the two most important things to me.
“I want to thank every single person at City because without them I wouldn’t be where I am today. All the Academy coaches I’ve worked with, all the players I’ve played with, and everyone who works behind the scenes. It is an honor to be part of this football club.”
Txiki Begiristain, City director of football, said: “We are all so proud of Phil and what he has already achieved – but we know there is so much more ahead of us.
“His natural talent and skills are evident, but his hard work, professionalism and dedication make him very special. He loves football more than anything and his will to improve is really incredible.”
