“This is a fantastic moment for me – I’m so happy to be able to promise my future to Manchester City,” he said. “In my opinion, this is the best team in world football, with the best manager and the best coaching staff. It is a privilege to be here and help this team achieve its goals.

“I feel like I’m learning every day and I’ve definitely improved as a goalkeeper since I came here. I contributed to our success last season, which was a fantastic experience.

“I want to keep pushing Ederson every day and take my chances when they come.”

Steffen has appeared in two Premier League matches for City – one during each of the last two seasons – but has enjoyed the vast majority of his minutes in cup competitions, where he has kept four seven zeros in 14 matches.

Football manager Txiki Begiristain added: “Zack is an excellent goalkeeper and a brilliant professional who adds so much to Pep’s squad.

“He fits into the plan of what a Manchester City goalkeeper should be. Not only is he good with his hands, he is also calm on the ball and provides outstanding distribution, which is an important part of our style.

“This is a man who trains to an exceptionally high standard every day. He always wants to learn and improve. Our coaching staff loves to have him here and we want to see him continue his development in the coming years. ”
