EXCLUSIVE By Pete O’Rourke
Manchester City defender Kyle Walker has agreed the terms of a bumper new contract at the club, Football Insider understands.
City have moved to tie the full-back down to a two-year extension that will lift his wages to a stunning £200,000 a week and keep him at the club until he turns 34.
An Etihad source has told Football Insider that the terms have been settled and should be announced imminently.
The new deal for the experienced wide defender comes as the Premier League champions look to secure all their top players on long-term contracts.
Walker, who joined City from Tottenham in the summer of 2017, still has three years to run on his current deal, but the new contract will keep him at the Etihad until 2024.
The right-back has established himself as a key man in Pep Guardiola’s side and he has made 100 appearances for City in his first two seasons at the club.
Walker has helped City win two Premier Leagues, two Carabao Cups and an FA Cup during his time at the club and the new deal would see him remain at City into his mid-30s if he sees it out.
