Transfers Goalkeeper Stefan Ortega signs new deal to stay at Man City

Stefan Ortega Moreno signed a one-year extension to his Manchester City contract in a deal that keeps him at the Etihad Stadium until the summer of 2026.

The German goalkeeper made 20 appearances in all competitions last season, with his one-v-one save to deny Son Heung-Min in our penultimate Premier League game away at Tottenham a crucial moment as City made it a record fourth title in a row.

He also appeared in every round of the FA Cup as City reached a second-successive final. Since his arrival in Manchester back in July 2022, he has made 34 appearances, winning two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and one Champions League.

“I am delighted to be staying at Manchester City for longer,” Ortega Moreno said. “This is a football club that provides players with everything we need to be our best. Every single day I feel motivated and challenged, and I have improved as a goalkeeper since coming here two years ago.

“My family are really settled here in England… I love everything about it here.  Signing this deal means I can now focus 100% on next season and beyond.”

Ortega Moreno joined City in the summer of 2022 on a free transfer after his contract at Arminia Bielefeld expired, having made 220 appearances across two different spells at the team he joined as a youngster in 2007.

He made his first-team debut four years later, before helping them win promotion to 2. Bundesliga in 2013. He joined TSV 1860 Munich in 2014, making 64 appearances in three years there, before re-signing for Arminia Bielefeld in 2017 and eventually becoming vice captain.
