- Phil Foden’s representatives have held positive talks with Manchester City
- Highly-rated 18-year-old is set to put pen to paper on a fresh deal until 2024
- Sportsmail understands it will be a considerable hike on his £15,000-pw wages
Phil Foden is set to sign a new six-year contract at Manchester City by the end of this month.
The 18-year-old’s representatives held positive talks with City officials on Wednesday and there is a confidence that he will commit his long-term future to his boyhood club.
Sportsmail understands the deal is heavily incentivised and represents a considerable hike on his current £15,000-a-week contract.
Phil Foden is set to put pen to paper on a new deal at Manchester City this month
Foden, who had interest from across Europe and currently away with England Under 21s, has always wanted to remain at the Etihad Stadium and this deal will keep him there until 2024.
Interested clubs have been pessimistic about their chances of landing the midfielder given his desire to make it at City and the increased game time afforded to him by Pep Guardiola.
Foden – who has been at City since the age of five – has made 10 appearances so far this season, coming off the bench for the final minutes of last weekend’s derby victory over Manchester United.
The planned discussions were revealed by Sportsmail last month and have been swift.
The future of Foden’s former academy team-mate Brahim Diaz is less clear, with no progress made on fresh terms.
