Manchester City have announced that academy graduate Luke Mbete has signed a three-year contract extension with the club, extending his stay until June 2027.
The 18-year-old centre-back was an influential player for the club's Under-23s last season on their way to lifting the Premier League 2 title, helping the champions keep eight clean sheets in 19 appearances.
Mbete is highly regarded by the Citizens and has already made three senior appearances under Pep Guardiola, including his debut in the 6-1 EFL Cup win over Wycombe Wanderers in September last year.
Speaking to mancity.com about his new deal, Mbete said: "This is a very proud moment both for me and my family. I want to express my thanks to everyone at the club for showing their faith in me.
