MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Swedish striker John Guidetti has signed a three-year contract extension with defending Premier League champion Manchester City.
The 20-year-old Guidetti spent last season on loan at Feyendoord, scoring 20 goals in 23 matches to help the Rotterdam club finish second in the Dutch league.
Guidetti, who was signed by Sven-Goran Eriksson in 2008, told the Man City website that "I feel really happy of course, it's a fantastic football club and to sign a new deal is really, really good."
Guidetti has made one competitive appearance for City. He has a lot of forward rivals at the club but says he relishes the competition, adding that "if everything was easy it wouldn't be fun. I know I'm going to learn so much from all the great strikers that are here."
