Manchester City have announced that attacker Oscar Bobb has extended his contract at the club until the summer of 2029.

The 20-year-old was promoted to Pep Guardiola's first-team squad this season following the departures of Riyad Mahrez and Cole Palmer last summer.

Bobb had previously made a notable impression for Man City's academy teams after joining the club from Valerenga in 2019, scoring 31 goals and registering 33 assists in 114 appearances across all youth competitions from Under-18 to Under-21 level.

The Norway international has since taken huge strides in his development under Guardiola this term, making 16 first-team appearances in all competitions, including his Premier League and Champions League debuts.

Bobb scored his first senior goal for Man City in the Champions League, netting in the second half of the Citizens' 3-2 group-stage victory at Red Star Belgrade in December.

Just a month later, Bobb celebrated his first Premier League goal when he scored a stoppage-time winner to help Man City beat Newcastle United 3-2 at St James' Park.

The Norwegian was rewarded for his superb strike as he won January's Premier League Goal of the Month prize, becoming the first Citizens player since Rodri in November 2021 to claim the individual accolade

Bobb, who was part of the Man City squad that became FIFA Club World Cup champions earlier this season, was due to see his original contract expire in June 2026, but he has decided to commit his future to the club by penning a new three-year extension.

"I am very proud and honoured to have signed my new contract with City," Bobb told the club's official website.

"It's an incredible environment and the best possible place to be for a young player – I have already learnt so much from Pep, his coaching staff and my teammates.

"To know I'm going to be here at the club until 2029 means everything to me. Now I just want to focus on continuing to further my development and to work as hard as I can every day to try and help the club achieve more success."

Man City director of football Txiki Begiristain added: "Oscar is blessed with superb natural talent and technique and has already established himself as a very important member of the squad.

"He is an exciting young player who is always hungry to learn and who takes on board all the advice and guidance Pep and the coaching staff provide him with.

"We have been delighted to watch his progression from our academy through to the first team and to see his fantastic ability, attitude and application continue to prosper.

"And to have another young player emerge from our academy and become a first-team player is a source of huge pride for everyone at the football club.

"Oscar is developing all the time, and we believe he can help to bring even more success to the club in the coming years."

Bobb is in contention to feature in Man City's FA Cup fifth-round tie away against Luton Town at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday night. body check tags ::
