Rico Lewis, a Manchester City defender, extended his Etihad deal until the summer of 2028.
Lewis made his senior City debut in August of last year at the age of just 17, and by the end of the historic triple season, he had played in 24 games with the first team. The 18-year-old, who won’t be 19 until November, also began last Friday’s away Premier League match against Burnley for City.
Lewis, a Manchester native who hails from Bury, said, “It’s been a fantastic year for me, and now to extend my contract is a dream come true.”
“As a City supporter, I can recall seeing us take home championships when I was a child, and it’s the only place I’ve ever wanted to be. It’s wonderful to know I’ll be around until 2028, and I can’t wait to keep working and get better.”
“Everyone at the club has been so wonderful, especially the academy, where I learned so much and am appreciative of everything they did for me. Additionally, the fans have been fantastic, and I would do whatever it takes for both them and the club to keep us on the winning track.”
