Centerback Shay Facey has signed a new contract with Manchester City through the end of June 2018, the club announced today.

Facey had been on-loan at New York City FC for the 2015 MLS season but returned to Manchester City after the team’s season ended. Manchester City had initially announced on Twitter that Facey would return to NYCFC for the next two seasons but deleted the tweet.

NYCFC later clarified that Facey is contracted to Manchester City. City has yet to determine its plans with Facey and can still loan him to NYCFC if they want to.

Facey’s contract was set to expire at the end of the 2015-16 season but an impressive stint with NYCFC convinced club management to give him a new deal.

With Facey set to turn 21 in January, he will be eligible for Manchester City’s Elite Development Squad for the current season and the 2016-17 season. That makes it possible for him to be loaned to NYCFC a second time as part of the agreement between NYCFC, Manchester City and MLS.

    He’s proven himself suitable to play for the Varsity team, so off he goes.

    No need to stay with the JV

    Man City reserve team will miss him

    They aren’t a true reserve team like RBNY II is for RBNY for example but Man City does consider all of their affiliated teams as one big club and they will use NYCFC to get young players development time before they play for the big club.
