Silva pens new City deal

SoccerNews in General Soccer News 12 Aug 2014


David Silva has put pen to paper on a new five-year contract with Manchester City.

The Spain international has been a key member of City’s side since joining from Valencia in 2010, playing a vital role in their two Premier League title wins in 2011-12 and last season.

And the 28-year-old had no hesitation in committing to a deal that will keep him at the Etihad Stadium until 2019.

Speaking to the City’s official website, Silva said: “From the moment I joined the club four years ago it has felt like a second home to me.

“On and off the pitch, I feel incredibly content and fulfilled professionally and personally, so why wouldn’t I want to stay and keep winning trophies with this fantastic team?

“Over the last four years, we have achieved so much together, establishing City as a dominating force in England and now, when I look around this dressing room, I can see no reason why we won’t become one of the top teams in the world.

“It was a straightforward decision to extend my stay here and spend my peak years at Manchester City, a club with unbelievable fans who have always supported me.”

As well as two top-flight titles, Silva has also won the FA Cup and League Cup in his four seasons at City.

A World Cup and double European Championships winner with his country, Silva becomes the third City player to sign a new contract this close-season, following Aleksandar Kolarov and Samir Nasri.
