Walker agrees City extension


Kyle Walker has signed a new two-year extension with Manchester City.

Walker moved to the Etihad Stadium from Tottenham in 2017 and during his time at the club he has won back-to-back Premier League titles, two EFL Cups and the FA Cup.

He has made 100 appearances for Pep Guardiola's side and he has spoken of his delight at signing a new two-year extension, which will keep him at the Etihad until June 2024.

“I’m thrilled to have signed a new deal. Playing for City has been everything I’d hoped it would be and more," Walker said.

It was an easy decision. I want to be competing for trophies, playing at the highest level, and I feel I have improved hugely as a player during my time here.

“The club’s vision – both on and of the pitch – matches mine perfectly and I’m looking forward to spending the next five years here, hopefully winning more silverware.”

City’s director of football Txiki Begiristain added: “We are delighted to have Kyle here for a further two years. His strength, speed and ability have been vital to our accomplishments. He is a key member of the squad.

His experience is invaluable, particularly to the younger members of the team, and his contribution will be crucial in our efforts for continued success.”
