The Germany midfielder has signed a new contract which keeps him at the Etihad Stadium until 2023 and is grateful he has the chance to try and help us fulfil our potential even further.

“I am very happy,” he said.

“I feel privileged to work with this great group of lads and with Pep.

“Playing for this club for three years is an amazing feeling and I am very grateful that I can continue and hopefully we can achieve more nice moments.

“We have great players and have already achieved a lot, but I think there is more to come. We have a lot of potential.

"I am happy that I can be a part of trying to get that out of us.”
