De Bruyne signs new contract
Midfielder Kevin de Bruyne has signed a new contract with Manchester City which will keep him at the club until 2025.
The 29-year-old Belgian had two years left on his existing deal, but has signed an extension on improved terms.
City wanted to reward key players who had struck with them whilst they were under transfer embargo – subsequently lifted on appeal, and de Bruyne was one of them.
He celebrated in style by scoring the opening goal in their narrow Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night.
That was his eighth goal of a season that has also seen him provide 16 assists in 33 appearances.
Since joining the club from Wolfsburg in 2015, the Belgian has won the Premier League twice, the FA Cup, and the League Cup on four occasions. And he seems certain to add to his collection of silverware as the club continues to chase honours on four fronts this season.

He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
