Gundogan U-turn over Man City contract plans

Ilkay Gundogan is prepared to consider new contract talks at Manchester City.

Goal reports the midfielder's deal expires next summer and talks broke down in March but both sides are now willing to discuss and agree a fresh deal to keep him at the Etihad.

The 28-year-old could have been sold by City in the summer, due to their expectation that it would be impossible to tie him to a new deal.

But their outlook changed in April and Gundogan himself now wants to sit down and discuss an extension.

He has impressed in recent months for City, stepping in for the injured Fernandinho as the club went 14 games unbeaten and retained the Premier League.
