Manchester City Football Club has officially announced the contract extension of their captain, Kyle Walker, with the Cityzens.
This confirmation was made by the 2022/23 treble-winning team on their official website on September 14, 2023. The defender, who joined Manchester City in the summer transfer window of 2016, has played a pivotal role both on and off the field, especially mentoring younger players. Although the 33-year-old’s contract was set to expire at the end of the current season (2022/23), he has chosen to commit to a two-year extension, binding him to the club until 2026.
Walker shared his reasons for this decision on the club’s website.
I’m thrilled to sign a new deal. My future is with Manchester City and that is the best thing for me. I have enjoyed every single moment of the past six years at this fantastic Club. I have an amazing coach, great teammates and staff and our fans are the best. I feel supported on every single level.
The Treble-winning season is one I will never forget and we’re ready to go again and try to win more trophies. I am delighted to continue at a Club that competes for trophies every year and I can’t wait to see what the next few years bring.
