John Stones signs fresh five-year deal at Manchester City

August 11, 2021

John Stones has signed a five-year deal at Manchester City until 2026.


The 27-year-old joined City from Everton five years ago and has gone on to win three Premier Leagues, two League Cups, and one FA Cup.

The England Centre-back was an integral part of the City squad as they reclaimed the league title last season, while his form earned him a recall to the England set-up.


Stones started every match as England reached the Euro 2020 final, while at City he made 35 appearances in all competitions in 2020-21.


“I couldn’t be happier,” Stones said. “I love being part of this squad. There are so many quality players here and I know we can continue winning trophies, which is my main focus.


“Working with the manager [Pep Guardiola] is a dream – he has taught me so much about the game and I feel like I learn something new every single day

“The success we’ve had in the last four years has been incredible. To be a part of it has been a dream come true and I just want to continue winning.


“This is the best place for me to play my football and fulfil my ambitions.”


Stones joined City from Everton in 2016 for £47.5m.
