United States men’s national team goalkeeper Zack Steffen will be staying on with the reigning Premier League champions.

Manchester City confirmed Thursday that Steffen has signed a new contract that will keep him with the club through the 2024-25 season. Financials of the agreement weren’t disclosed.

Steffen, 26, originally signed for City from Major League Soccer side Columbus Crew in the summer of 2019 and then spent the subsequent campaign on loan with German Bundesliga club Fortuna Dusseldorf. He returned to City last season and was part of the team that won the Premier League and Carabao Cup.

Steffen was on the bench for the Champions League final that City lost to Chelsea.

“This is a fantastic moment for me – I am so happy to be committing my future to Manchester City,” Steffen said for the official release. “In my opinion, this is the best team in world football, with the best manager and best coaching setup. It’s a privilege to be here and contribute to this team achieving its targets.

“I feel I learn every day and I have definitely improved as a goalkeeper since coming here. I contributed to our success last season, which was an amazing experience. I want to keep pushing (City No. 1) Ederson every single day and take my chances when they arrive.”

Thus far, Steffen has earned 24 caps for the USMNT.

“He fits the blueprint of what a Manchester City goalkeeper should be,” City director of football Txiki Begiristain added in the statement. “Not only is great with his hands, but he is also calm on the ball and provides outstanding distribution, which is a vital part of our style.

“This is a man who trains to an exceptionally high standard every single day. He always wants to learn and improve. Our coaching staff love having him here and we want to see him continue his development over the next years.”
