Ederson happy to commit to champions

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson has said that committing his future to the Premier League champions was an easy decision to make.

Ederson has signed a new long-term contract with City to keep him at the Etihad until the end of 2026. The 28-year-old has won the Premier League in three of his four seasons with the club and City are 10/11 to retain their title in 2021-22.

Ederson joined the Citizens from Portuguese powerhouses Benfica prior to the 2017-18 season for £35million and has gone on to make 148 appearances for Pep Guardiola's men.

He has won the Premier League's Golden Glove award for the most clean sheets in a season in each of the past two campaigns and has twice been named in the PFA Premier League team of the year.

The goalkeeper has been capped 16 times by Brazil and was part of the Selecao's Copa America-winning team in 2019.

Speaking to the club's official website, Ederson said he was delighted to be extending his stay with the club and that he and his family feel right at home in Manchester.

Easy call for Ederson

"It means a lot [to extend his contract]," he said. "I'm very happy at the club, in this city and my family has settled in very well.

"I feel that the fans love me, my kids are in school, my wife likes to be here, so it's all very positive and it means that my work is being recognised.

"I hope to continue with the hard work, dedication, in order to help the team, the club to win trophies and titles.

"In the last four years we've been winning trophies and we can continue that way. I'll keep working hard for that to happen."
