Adarabioyo signs four-year City deal

Manchester City defender Tosin Adarabioyo has been rewarded with a new four-year deal at the Premier League side.

City are set for a major overhaul of their squad during this off-season but one player who is going nowhere is the talented 19-year-old centre-back.

Adarabioyo made his way up the club’s youth ranks, having initially joined in 2003, before forcing his way into the senior and first team set-up last season.

He made his senior debut against Chelsea in the FA Cup in February 2016 and has made a total of four appearance for City.

Speaking to the club’s official website after signing his new contract, Adarabioyo said: “I want to get myself into the first team and play as many games as I can.

“We have a talented and very good group of players so you just have to keep working hard, play as many games as you can and when the opportunity comes I have to take it.

“Since I was a young kid I have dreamed of playing for the City first team and being captain of this club so hopefully I can go on and do that.”

Part of a City statement read: “A tall defender capable of reading the game quickly, Adarabioyo signed his first professional contract with the club when he turned 17 in 2014 – three years after making his U18s debut at the tender age of 14.

“Excellent on the ball, the defender possesses good positional awareness and leadership skills – as demonstrated by his track record of captaining City’s U18s squad in 2014/15 before moving up to the EDS for the 2015/16 campaign.

“All at Manchester City would like to congratulate Tosin on his new contract and we look forward to monitoring his progress!”
