Manchester City signs Ederson on a new long-term contract


Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson has signed a new long-term contract with the club until 2026.

The 28-year-old joined City from Benfica in 2017 and has won three Premier League titles with the club.

During his time with City, he has kept 95 clean sheets in 194 appearances and twice been given the Golden Glove award for most clean sheets in a season.

Ederson told the Manchester City website: “This was an easy decision for me. There is nowhere else I’d want to be.

“To be part of one of the best squads in world football and to compete for trophies year in year out is what every footballer wants, and that is the opportunity you’re given at City.

“We have an outstanding manager. Working with him has been one of the great experiences of my career and I am a better player for it.

“We have achieved so much in the last four years, and I am confident we can continue to bring more success to the club in the coming seasons.”

Ederson follows Kevin De Bruyne, Fernandinho, John Stones and Ruben Dias in extending his contract this year.
