Manchester City set to extend defender John Stones’ contract

Manchester City is set to extend defender John Stones’ contract, The Times claims.

City head coach Pep Guardiola wants to ensure that the 26-year-old doesn’t leave the club and that the Englishman is personally eager to extend his contract.

In the summer, talks for an extension will begin. The existing Stones contract runs until 2022.

This season, Stones played 13 games in the EPL without receiving a single card.

After not playing for his country since November 2019, he also appears to be back in contention for a spot in the postponed Euros with England this summer.

He has played 90 minutes in nine of City’s last 10 Premier League games and also scored against Crystal Palace twice earlier this month – his first league goals since 2015.

Sunday’s 4-1 victory at Anfield against Liverpool means Guardiola’s men are five points clear of second-placed Manchester United, with their city rivals playing a game in hand.

In April’s Carabao Cup final, they are set to play Spurs and are still alive in the Champions League and FA Cup – where they are coming up against Swansea today in the fifth round.
