Manchester City have handed Angus Gunn a four-year contract extension.
The former Norwich City academy goalkeeper, the son of Canaries legend Bryan, impressed for the Premier League giants' elite development squad (EDS) last season.
The 19-year-old joined the big-spending club when his family moved to the north-west in 2011.
Gunn helped City's EDS, managed by former France and Arsenal midfielder Patrick Vieira, to win the inaugural Premier League International Cup and reach the quarter-finals of the Uefa Youth League.
The Norfolk-born keeper is one of three players nominated for the club's EDS Player of the Year award.
