Raheem Sterling has signed a contract extension with Manchester City to remain at the club until 2023.

The 23-year-old England forward’s previous deal at Etihad Stadium was due to expire at the end of next season.

Sterling is now tied to the club until 2023 after agreeing a lucrative new deal that could earn him as much as £300,000 per week.

Sterling told City’s website: “I’m delighted to sign. My development here has been incredible. I felt from the minute I got here it was the right choice for me. It’s really paid off for me and I’m really grateful.

“Every season you come in you want to do better than your previous season. You want to try and develop and get better.

“With the facilities we’ve got here there’s no reason not to. With the coaching staff and the players we have in this team it’s the perfect environment to develop and get better.”

Sterling, who has scored seven goals for the club this season, joined City from Liverpool in a £49m deal in 2015.

“This is a significant moment for the club,” Manchester City director of football Txiki Begiristain said.

“Raheem has improved dramatically in the past two seasons and is now one of the Premier League’s best attacking players. His statistics tell their own story.

“He’s quick, strong and excellent in front of goal – everything a modern-day forward needs to excel.

“We’re all delighted he has committed his future to City.”
