Stones signs new deal at Man City


Manchester City have announced the contract extension of defender, John Stones.

The 27-year-old centre-back has signed a new five-year contract to commit his future to the English Premier League Champions.

Stones arrived at the Etihad Stadium ahead of Pep Guardiola’s first season in charge and has since gone on to make 168 appearances across all competitions.

He has won every trophy in the English game, including: 3 Premier League titles, 2 League Cups, 1 FA Cup and 2 Community Shields.

“I couldn’t be happier,” said Stones.

“I love being part of this squad. There are so many quality players here and I know we can continue winning trophies, which is my main focus.

“Working with the manager is a dream – he has taught me so much about the game and I feel like I learn something new every single day.

“The success we’ve had in the last four years has been incredible. To be a part of it has been a dream come true and I just want to continue winning.

“This is the best place for me to play my football and fulfil my ambitions.”

Meanwhile, Director of Football Txiki Begiristain also stated that: “This is great news for our club. John is an exceptional footballer and a fantastic defender, whose attributes are well suited to our style of play.”

“We knew when we signed him that we were getting a talented centre-back, but he has really matured in his five years here and, as we saw last season, is at the top of his game right now.

“John has been an important part of our recent success and we believe he can continue to help us achieve our goals, so for him to commit his best years to us is a major boost for the club.”
