The academy graduate has impressive Pep Guardiola and the manager has trusted him on a number of occasions this campaign.

Despite having many talented and experienced players on the bench during a difficult Premier League match against Newcastle United in January, Pep introduced the youngster and he was rewarded for doing that.

The Norwegian came on for Jeremy Doku in the 82 minutes of the match and scored the winning goal in the stoppage time by brilliantly moving past Dubravka to put the ball in the net.

Pep is not the only person that believes in the 20-year-old, his teammates also have confidence in him and believe that he can assist the team in many ways.

“That is more important than the manager,” Guardiola said when speaking about the senior players: confidence in the ability of the youngster. “When the team-mates can say that a player can play with us that is the best success – and it was immediate.”

Bobb was handed a first Premier League start by Guardiola last Tuesday, as City beat Brentford 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium. Erling Haaland, another Norwegian scored the only goal of the match.

It was gathered that many offers to lure Bobb away from Etihad were outrightly rejected by City. The Cityzens refused to entertain any loan deal last summer and have decided to offer the youngster a long-term deal.

According to Mike McGrath, Bobb has agreed to remain at his boyhood club for the next coming years with the possibility of extending in the future. He will receive a sizeable pay rise and the details of the deal will be made public when everything has been finalised.
