Man City star John Stones set to sign three-year contract extension “at the request of Pep Guardiola”
It is according to the journalist Ekrem Konur, who broke the news Tuesday morning which follows a season of immense club success for John Stones and now a continuation of his form with his country.
At the current European Championships, John Stones has been at the heart of an England defense that has kept five consecutive clean sheets – scoring a national record and playing a pivotal role in leading Gareth Southgate’s side to the half. final.
John Stones appears to have left his injuries and mistakes behind and is looking to secure his future at Manchester City once the tournament is over – and it is certainly encouraging news that has reached social media today.

Konur reports that the 27-year-old center-back is set to draft a new three-year contract, which will see him stay at Manchester at least until 2025 – at the behest of Pep Guardiola.
His existing contract with Manchester City runs until 2022 and John Stones was one of the main names linked to a move away from the club last summer.
However, the former Everton defender who signed at Etihad Stadium for a fee of around £ 49million refused to budge and established himself as one of the Premier League’s best center-backs.
