Man City lock down key midfield cog to new four-year deal

Date published: Friday 9th August 2019 9:27


Ilkay Gundogan has signed a new three-year contract extension with Manchester City, the Premier League champions have announced.

The German midfielder, who had just entered the final year of his previous deal, is now committed to the club until 2023.

The news ends speculation over the future of the 28-year-old, who joined City from Borussia Dortmund in 2016.

Gundogan told the club’s website: “I am very happy to have signed the new contract. I have hugely enjoyed the last three years here at City and everyone at the club has helped make me feel at home from my very first day.

“It’s a privilege to be a part of this team, playing the style of football we do and winning trophies. It’s very difficult to do that and I’m delighted to be a part of it.

“I’m really excited about what we can go on to achieve in the next few seasons.”

The good news comes in stark contrast to the announcement yesterday that Leroy Sane had suffered anterior cruciate ligament damage following a challenge with Liverpool’s Trent Alexander Arnold in last week’s Community Shield.
