Ederson signs two-year contract extension with Manchester City

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson has signed a two-year contract extension with the club.

Ederson, 24, signed a six-year deal when he joined from Benfica last summer and, having enjoyed an excellent season, he has agreed to further extend his tenure.

Clear first choice at City, the Brazil international only missed two Premier League games as Pep Guardiola’s men romped to the Premier League title by a record margin.

He said: “I’m delighted to sign my new contract.

“It means that the club is happy with my work, they trust me, and I hope to meet their expectations on the pitch and bring a lot of joy to the fans.

“I want to win everything we can! All of the competitions, but for me the Champions League is without a doubt a very special competition for us, and it is my dream to win it in Manchester City’s shirt.”

Txiki Begiristain, Manchester City director of football, said: “Ederson has shown in his first season at the club that he has all the attributes needed to become one of the best goalkeepers in the world.

“He has outstanding quality and his ability with the ball sets him apart from his competitors.

“We are really looking forward to seeing him develop at City over the coming years.”
