Manchester City defender Kyle Walker has signed a two-year extension to his contract at The Etihad, tying him to the club until 2024.
Walker joined the blues from Spurs for an initial fee of £45m, and has won six trophies in his first two years at the club.
“I’m thrilled to have signed a new deal,” the full back said on mancity.com. “Playing for City has been everything I’d hoped it would be and more. 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 off the pitch – matches mine perfectly and I’m looking forward to spending the next five years here, hopefully winning more silverware.”
Walker arrived at the club as part of manager Pep Guardiola’s defensive improvements, that also saw the arrival of left back Benjamin Mendy, goalkeeper Ederson and Danilo, while Aymeric Laporte joined in the January window, while Gael Clichy, Bacary Sagna, Aleksander Kolarov and the legend that is Pablo Zabaleta left the club.
The news of Walker’s extension comes amid rumours that Brazilian full back Danilo will be leaving the club and will be replaced by Joao Cancelo from Juventus, who will provide competition and rotation in that right back slot.
