has signed a new contract that keeps him with the Premier League champions until 2027 and gives the England international a huge pay rise.

The new deal has been in the pipeline for a while but was delayed as Foden was changing his management team, not because there was any doubt over whether he would stay.

The 22-year-old has become an integral part of ’s squad and now the starting XI, with the Stockport-born star starting all nine Premier League games so far this season, scoring six league goals.

His form has earned him this new deal, with the reporting that he will now earn over £200,000-a-week.

The state that his previous deal saw him earn around £60,000-a-week, so his wages have more than tripled and he is understandably thrilled.

‘To extend my stay here is all I’ve ever dreamed of. It’s hard to put into words how happy I am,’ Foden said. ‘It’s such an easy thing to say but, (there is) a lot more (to come). I think the manager has made me 10 times the player I was.

‘I have been a City fan all my life. I’ve trained here for so many years and I’ve even been a ballboy. I love this club so much, so to know I am going to be a part of it until 2027 feels amazing.

‘I’ve improved a lot in recent years and so much of that is down to Pep and his staff, who guide me every single day on the training field. Working with them gives me the best chance of improving even more and becoming the best player I can be.

‘With the squad we have here, I feel I can keep learning and winning trophies. Those are the two most important things to me.

‘I want to thank every single person at City because without them I would not be where I am today. All the Academy coaches I worked with, all the players I’ve played with and everyone who works behind the scenes. It’s an honour to be part of this football club.’
