Man City likely to give Phil Foden an improved deal in coming weeks

Manchester City are likely to give youngster Phil Foden an improved contract in the coming weeks, Sky Sports News understands.

According to sources, Foden, who celebrated his 18th birthday on Monday, will not be loaned out next season after picking up a Premier League winner’s medal last term.

It is thought Pep Guardiola is keen to extend Foden’s contact as part of his plans to defend City’s title.

Foden made 10 appearances for City last season, including five in the Premier League.

He made his debut in November 2017 in the Champions League against Feyenoord, when he came off the bench to replace Yaya Toure.

Foden scored twice as England beat Spain 5-2 in the final of the U17 World Cup in October and was also named player of the tournament following his impressive displays.
