LONDON, June 19 (Xinhua) -- England international defender Kyle Walker has extended his contract with Premier League champions Manchester City until the end of June 2024, the club confirmed on Wednesday.

Walker joined Manchester City in the summer of 2017 and his first two seasons have seen him win consecutive Premier League titles, the FA Cup, two League Cups and the Community Shield.

He made 52 appearances for the side coached by Pep Guardiola this season as City clinched a Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup domestic treble.

"I'm thrilled to have signed a new deal, playing for City has been everything I'd hoped it would be and more," said the 29-year-old right back, who can also cover in central defense.

"It was an easy decision. I want to be competing for trophies, playing at the highest level, and I feel I have improved hugely as a player during my time here. The club's vision, both on and off the pitch, matches mine perfectly and I'm looking forward to spending the next five years here, hopefully winning more silverware," added Walker.
