Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has signed a new four-year contract until 2023.

Gundogan revealed that he is delighted to have reached an agreement with City and that he has really enjoyed playing for the club over the past three seasons.

‘I am very happy to have signed the new contract,” Gundogan told

“I have hugely enjoyed the last three years here at City and everyone at the Club has helped make me feel at home from my very first day.”

The former Borussia Dortmund midfielder also described playing for City as a ‘privilege’ and that he loves the style of play that Pep Guardiola has installed.

“It’s a privilege to be a part of this team, playing the style of football we do and winning trophies. It’s very difficult to do that and I’m delighted to be a part of it,” he added.

“I’m really excited about what we can go on to achieve in the next few seasons.”
