Man City continue to wrap up their core players for the future. Gabriel Jesus has extended his stay with Man City for 2 years, which will see the young Brazilian under contract for 5 more years with the club.

“I would like to thank the fans for the welcome and for how well they have treated me. I can say that it was the best decision I’ve made in my life to come to Manchester City because whilst I’m here I’m improving as a professional and as a person.

”Also thanks to the Club for being so organised and focused since I arrived. Pep had an important role in my signing, but also the Club. City is a huge Club and it is getting bigger and bigger so I just want to say thanks for everything. I hope that I can keep making the fans happy.”

Following a somewhat disappointing World Cup, Jesus is pegged for a big role with Man City. He is seen as the heir apparent to Aguero and his minutes and playing time will only increase. He is one of the worlds brightest and most talented under 22 players.

In other news, Tosin Adarabioyo is joining West Brom on a season long loan. The 20 year old defender, who is highly rated, hasn't quite been able to crack the senior team, and has been searching for regular minutes to further his development. While technically part of the senior team, the depth at CB saw Tosin only make 4 senior team appearances last year, and it was unlikely his role would change at all this year. We wish Tosin all the best.
