John Stones has signed a contract extension that will keep him at Man City until 2026. Stones joined Man City from Everton five years ago and has won three Premier League titles with the club along with two League Cups and a FA Cup. He was an integral part of the backline when Man City won the title last season. His superb form earned him an England call-up for Euro 2020. During the tournament, he started every match for England.
“I couldn’t be happier,” Man City defender John Stones said. “I love being part of this squad. There are so many quality players here and I know we can continue winning trophies, which is my main focus. Working with the manager [Pep Guardiola] is a dream – he has taught me so much about the game and I feel like I learn something new every single day.”
“The success we’ve had in the last four years has been incredible. To be a part of it has been a dream come true and I just want to continue winning,” he added. “This is the best place for me to play my football and fulfill my ambitions.”
“This is great news for our club. John is an exceptional footballer and a fantastic defender, whose attributes are well suited to our style of play.” Director of football Txiki Begiristain said. “We knew when we signed him that we were getting a talented center-back, but he has really matured in his five years here and, as we saw last season, is at the top of his game right now.
