Walker was heavily linked with a move to Bayern Munich as he entered the final year of his contract.

However, he eventually decided to stay put at the Etihad Stadium and has now extended his stay until 2026.

In City’s announcement of the new deal Walker acted out a famous scene from ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’.

DiCaprio stars as Jordan Belfort in the Hollywood movie about the New York stockbroker, with one moment in particular seeing him famously shout: “I’m not f****** leaving!”
