John Stones is more than happy to stay with Manchester City.

Manchester City defender John Stones says he's focused on winning even more titles after putting paper on a new five-year deal at the Etihad Stadium.

The former Barnsley and Everton centre-back enjoyed a resurgence in form last season to help the Citizens to the title and now City are 10/11 to retain their Premier League crown this term, with Chelsea priced at 5/2.

I know we can continue winning trophies, which is my main focus.

Stones went on to impress at Euro 2020 with England, helping the Three Lions to the final of the major tournament, before the heartbreak of a penalty-shootout defeat at the hands of Italy.

The 27-year-old stopper joined City from the Toffees almost exactly five years ago and has won three league titles, two League Cups and an FA Cup since then, while he currently has 49 England caps to his name.

Now looking ahead to a new season and after securing his stay at City until 2026, a delighted Stones is hungry for more success with Pep Guardiola's side.

Stones - Best place to be

"I couldn't be happier," Stones told the club's official website. "I love being part of this squad. There are so many quality players here and I know we can continue winning trophies, which is my main focus.

"Working with the manager is a dream - he has taught me so much about the game and I feel like I learn something new every single day.

"The success we've had in the last four years has been incredible. To be a part of it has been a dream come true and I just want to continue winning. This is the best place for me to play my football and fulfil my ambitions."

Stones and City will be looking to make a winning start to their title defence when they make the trip to north London to take on Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
