This reliable platform gathered that the defender’s previous deal was due to expire at the end of next season and this new agreement keeps him at the Club until the summer of 2026.
Stones, who joined City five years ago, finalised the new contract after returning to the City Football Academy following his EURO 2020 exploits with England, where he maintained his superb club form to deliver a string of impressive performances as the Three Lions reached the final with the best defence in the tournament.
The 27-year-old arrived at the Etihad Stadium ahead of Pep Guardiola’s first season in charge and has since gone on to make 168 appearances, winning every trophy in the English game, including: three Premier Leagues, two League Cups, one FA Cup and two Community Shields.
“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 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.”
Director of Football Txiki Begiristain added: “This is great news for our club.
“John is an exceptional footballer and a fantastic defender, whose attributes are well suited to our style of play.
“We knew when we signed him that we were getting a talented centre-back, but he has really matured in his five years here and, as we saw last season, is at the top of his game right now.
“John has been an important part of our recent success and we believe he can continue to help us achieve our goals, so for him to commit his best years to us is a major boost for the club.”
Everyone at Manchester City congratulates John on his new contract and wishes him the best of luck for the rest of his career here.
