Manchester City defender extends contract until 2027 with option for a further year



| Last Updated:


Highly-rated Manchester City centre-back Callum Doyle has extended his contract until the summer of 2027, the club have confirmed.

The 19 year-old defender is currently spending the 2022/23 season on-loan at Championship club Coventry City – alongside fellow Manchester City academy starlet Josh Wilson-Esbrand – and has made 24 appearances for the club across all competitions so far this campaign.

His impressive spell on loan with Coventry follows another excellent temporary move with Sunderland last season, where the teenager also completed an exemplary number of appearances, with 44 across all competitions as well as one goal and three assists to his name.

Callum Doyle’s impressive performances throughout the Football League have since impressed Manchester City, who still consider the player as a potential part of their future plans, with the club confirming on Wednesday that he has agreed to terms keeping him at the club until 2027.

Doyle’s new contract also has the option to be extended by a further year until 2028, should the player continue his meteoric rise in the professional game, or even impress for Manchester City themselves in the coming seasons.

Callum Doyle was previously out of contract in 2024, so retaining the player’s services and constantly rising transfer value will come as a huge relief for all those concerned at the Premier League champions.

Defensive trio in Finley Burns, Shea Charles, and Josh Wilson-Esbrand all have deals with Manchester City until 2027, while highly-rated attacking talent Oscar Bobb has a contract running until 2026.

Elsewhere in the Championship is Tommy Doyle – whose contract runs until 2025, currently spending the season at Sheffield United. Alongside him is James McAtee, whose deal runs until 2026. As does the contract of Liam Delap, who recently exchanged a loan deal at Stoke City for Preston North End ahead of the second-half of the season.
