Manchester City are ready to hand John Stones a new contract.
The Mirror says City are set to hand Stones a new contract in a bid to show the England defender that he is still part of their future under Pep Guardiola.
Though the 24-year-old played the full 90 minutes in Saturday's win over Tottenham as champions City returned to the top of the Premier League table with four games to go, he had begun five of their previous six matches on the bench after returning to fitness in a season that has been hit by injuries.
Captain Kompany and Otamendi are now both well into their 30s though and Guardiola believes Stones will eventually forge a first-choice partnership with Laporte, also 24. And City are ready to secure the centre-back's future by handing him an improved £180,000-a-week deal.
