MANCHESTER, England (AP) Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson Moraes has signed a two-year contract extension, tying him to the Premier League champions until 2025.

The 24-year-old Ederson joined from Benfica on a six-year deal in the last offseason and has been one of City’s key players in its record-breaking title triumph with his shot-stopping and distribution.

City announced the contract extension for Ederson on Sunday, the day the Premier League season ended. City conceded the fewest goals in the league, 27 in 38 games.

Ederson is expected to be in Brazil’s squad for the World Cup starting next month.

Txiki Begiristain, City’s director of football, says “Ederson has shown in his first season at the club that he has all the attributes needed to become one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
