Swedish striker agrees new City deal

Published Add your comment

Manchester City have reportedly agreed a new long-term contract with Swedish international striker John Guidetti.

The 20-year-old signed for the Citizens from Brommapojkarna back in 2008, and has since enjoyed three loan spells away from the Etihad Stadium – one with his old club, one with Burnley and most recently with Feyenoord.

Indeed, last season’s spell in the Eredivisie saw the youngster score 20 goals in 23 appearances at De Kuip, with Ronald Koeman’s side finishing second in the Dutch top flight behind Ajax.

That form has generated much interest from across Europe, with a host of top clubs eager to add the player on loan in January after an illness prevented a short-term move away from Manchester City in the summer transfer window.

Despite having two-years left on his current deal with the Citizens, SkySports understands that the player has been rewarded for his efforts at other clubs, and is now tied to Roberto Mancini’s side for the foreseeable future.

His next task will be to try and break into a side boasting some of the world’s best strikers, including Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez and Mario Balotelli.
