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


Foden has scored six goals in nine Premier League games this season

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

The 22-year-old’s previous deal was set to expire in 2024.

Foden has scored 52 goals in 182 games since making his debut in November 2017 after becoming one of the brightest products of City’s academy.

“It’s hard to put into words how happy I am to have signed this contract,” said Foden.

“It’s a dream come true. I’ve been a City fan all my life. I’ve trained here for so many years and I’ve also been a football fan.

“I love this club so much, so knowing that I will be a part of it until 2027 is amazing.”

Stockport-born Foden, who has scored twice in 18 England caps, has won 11 trophies with City, including four Premier Leagues, four EFL Cups and the FA Cup.

He has also won the Premier League Young Player of the Season and PFA Young Player of the Year awards in the last two seasons.

City boss Pep Guardiola gave him his debut at the age of 17 and Foden credited the Spaniard with his incredible development over the past five years.

“Working with them gives me the best opportunity to improve even more and become the best player I can be.

“With the team we have here, I feel like I can keep learning and keep winning trophies. Those are the two most important things to me.”
