Manchester City director of football Txiki Begiristain has said Kevin De Bruyne's latest contract is a 'significant moment' for the club.

After a scintillating display in a 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, the 29-year-old extended his stay at the Etihad until 2025.

Begiristain told the club's website: "This is a very significant moment for this football club.

"Kevin is, without question, one of the best players in world football. His performance level has been remarkably consistent since coming to City, and in the last few years he has developed into one of the game's elite players.

"His talent is unquestionable – but he is also a consummate professional whose dedication to Manchester City during his time here has been nothing short of extraordinary. He constantly seeks to improve, and his approach is the perfect blueprint for any young player looking to carve out a career.

"We are delighted he is our player and I look forward to watching him during his peak years here at Manchester City."
