Silva at City till 2017

Manchester City and Spain midfielder David Silva has signed a new five-year contract at the Etihad Stadium worth €150,000 per week.

The 26-year-old has put pen-to-paper on a deal running up until the summer of 2017, following in the footsteps of Vincent Kompany and Joe Hart as big-name players who have tied their futures to the Premier League champions.

“I’m very pleased because I’ve been here for two years now and I feel very happy here at the club, in the city and with all the people,” Silva told City's official website.

“So now I’m delighted to be extending my contract and being here really does feel just like home for me.

“We’ve won the Premier League title and two other trophies too, the team is growing and we are now aiming at the Champions League, so that also is another reason to want to stay here and try and win it. As I said, I feel very comfortable here and I want to try and win trophies like those.

“These last two years have gone very well and so let’s hope that the next five go as well or even better.

"The fans have always given me their support since I arrived here, and recently they‘ve been wanting me to sign, so hopefully this goes some way to thanking them for the affection they’ve shown towards me, something which also helped me decide to sign.”

Silva signed for the Sky Blues' in 2010 and has since gone on to make over 70 appearances for Roberto Mancini's side.
