Under-21 midfielder Michael Johnson and defender Shaleum Logan have both
extended their contracts with the English Premier League club.The 19-year-old
Johnson, who has been first choice in City's midfield under new manager
Sven-Goran Eriksson, has penned a new four-year contract.Logan, also 19, has
signed a new three-year deal after impressing during the pre-season tour of
Sweden.City's chief executive Alistair Mackintosh said: "In awarding new
contracts to Michael and Shaleum we are once again demonstrating Manchester
City's commitment to investing in our young, home-grown players."With a spine of
hugely-talented academy-bred youngsters we have made an excellent start to the
season and are delighted to have secured the long-term futures of both players
at this football club."

Perhaps this wil hopefully put an end to any 'Johnson to Liverpool' stories that began circulating prior to the season and follows the remit to Eriksson from above to reward the Academy graduates with longer term, and no doubt financially improved deals.
