Manchester City have handed a new contract to striking starlet Alex Nimely.
The 19-year-old signed for City in 2008 after he impressed on trial.
The Liberian-born striker has now progressed to the fringes of the first-team and has been handed a four-year contract.
"It's a great day for me and my family," Nimely told the club's official website.
"To come from a country so far away and get to this stage is fantastic.
"Obviously my parents are very proud and I'd like to thank everyone who has supported me, particularly the coaches at the Academy who have really helped me over the past few years."
Nimely made his senior debut for City in their 6-1 thrashing of Burnley earlier this month.
