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.

"I have been fortunate to work under some amazing coaches throughout the academy and to be also able to train under Pep Guardiola and the first team coaches is an incredible privilege.

"I feel I am learning and improving all the time and there couldn't be a better club to keep developing.

"Having signed the new contract is a fantastic feeling and now I just want to carry on contributing in the best way I can."

Mbete becomes the latest Man City academy graduate to sign a new contract within the last 12 months, after Cole Palmer, James McAtee, Liam Delap and Finley Burns.
