Manchester City teenager Phil Foden has become a father at the age of 18.

Foden, who came through the youth system at City, is widely regarded as one of the best young talents in English football.

The midfielder has already played on 29 occasions for City's first team, with 19 of those appearances coming during the 2018-19 campaign.

Foden and partner Rebecca Cooke, also 18, welcomed their baby - believed to be a boy - earlier this month.

"Phil's delighted about the baby and giving every support to Rebecca and their kid. She's a few months younger and they have known each other a long time," The Sun quotes a source as saying.

"Phil used to put loads of pictures on social media of him and Rebecca. That stopped when he started getting near City's first team.

"He has to concentrate on football. He may be a bit young to do that and set up home with Becca. But she and their baby will want for nothing."

Foden has a contract with City until the end of the 2023-24 campaign.
