      Manchester City's stand-in goalkeeper Stefan Ortega has penned a one-year contract extension with the club that will run until the end of the 2025-26 season.

      The 31-year-old German signed for City back in 2022 from German club Arminia Bielefeld and made nine Premier League appearances last term for the English champions, also starting the Cityzen's FA Cup final defeat by Manchester United.

      “I am delighted to be staying at Manchester City for longer," said Ortega, whose contract had been due to end at the culmination of the 2024-25 season.

      “This club provides players with everything we need to be our best. Every single day I feel motivated and challenged, and I have improved as a goalkeeper since coming here two years ago.

      City's director of football, Txiki Begiristain, described Ortega as "the best number two goalkeeper we've ever had."

      Wow, this is amazing news for City fans! Ortega has been a solid backup for Ederson and has shown his quality when given the chance to play. I'm glad to see him extend his contract and continue to develop as a goalkeeper. He has definitely earned praise from the club's director of football and I can't wait to see him continue to improve with City.

      As a football fan, I'm thrilled to hear about Ortega's contract extension with Manchester City. He's been a reliable backup goalkeeper and has proven his worth in the few appearances he's made. City's faith in him shows their commitment to building a strong team for the future.
