English Premier League champions Manchester City have handed John Stones a whopping new five-year contract extension.
The former Everton star originally arrived in Manchester in 2016 for €55.6m.
"The 27-year-old has committed his future to the Club until 2026, which will bring about a decade of stellar service at the Etihad Stadium," the club announced on Tuesday.
The English central defender told the club that his manager Pep Guardiola and the support staff are the reason he decided to extend his future with the Cityzens.

"(They were) huge. I think everyone, coaching staff, all the other staff that are here, from day one made me feel so welcome,” Stones beamed after agreeing to extend his stay at City," the 27-year-old said to the club's media.
“I feel like this is home and I absolutely love the place," he added.
In the meantime, City is getting ready to start the new Premier League season away to the mighty Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.
