Man City's Walker signs two-year contract extension

Manchester City defender Kyle Walker signed a two-year contract extension with the treble winners on Thursday, AFP reports.

Walker agreed the new deal just weeks after his future with Pep Guardiola's side was in doubt amid links to Bayern Munich.

The 33-year-old was out of favour for a period of last season and was dropped from the starting line-up for City's Champions League final victory over Inter Milan in June.

Walker was in the final year of his existing deal with City, but the Premier League champions kept the right-back at the transfer deadline and have persuaded him to extend his stay in Manchester.

"I'm thrilled to sign a new deal. My future is with Manchester City and that is the best thing for me," said Walker, who has won 13 major trophies with City. City director of football Txiki Begiristain added: "We are very happy that Kyle will be here until 2026. For me, he is the best right-back in the world. "He is a player with a unique set of attributes. He brings a very special dynamic to our team. Kyle has been a huge part of our recent success."
