Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden agrees contract extension to 2024

Phil Foden has signed a five-and-a-half year contract extension with Manchester City that ties him to the club until the summer of 2024.

The 18-year-old midfielder has become a first-team squad regular for the champions this season under Pep Guardiola, playing 13 times this season.

Txiki Begiristain, the club’s sporting director, said: “We are delighted to have secured Phil for the next five-and-a-half years. He is an outstanding talent and he is Manchester City born and bred, so this is where he wants to play his football. Under Pep and with the players we have here around him, he is in the best place possible to develop as a player.”

Foden is Stockport-born and a lifelong City fan. He was named as an unused substitute in the 1-1 draw with Celtic in a Champions League group game in December 2016 before a debut in the same competition last November, the first of 10 appearances that season.

Foden was voted the best player at the Under-17 World Cup after scoring twice in the final to help England to a 5-2 victory over Spain.
