BREAKING NEWS: Laporte signs long-term extension with Manchester City

Aymeric Laporte has signed a two-year contract extension to keep him at Manchester City until 2025, the Premier League champions have confirmed.

The 24-year-old joined City for £57million in January 2018 – a club-record amount subsequently surpassed when Riyad Mahrez arrived from Leicester City during the close season.

Although he is still yet to win full international honours with France, Laporte has established himself as mainstay of Pep Guardiola's defence this season, appearing 36 times across all competitions and in every Premier League match.

"I could not be happier to commit my long-term future to Manchester City," Laporte said. "Since the day I arrived here, I have been made to feel welcome by Pep and all the players.

"This club offers me everything I need to improve my game. I've already made great strides and I want to continue getting better and better.

"Obviously, I want to win silverware and I feel City is the best place to fulfil all my ambitions."
