Silva Signs Five-Year New Man City Deal

David Silva has agreed a new Manchester City contract expected to keep the midfielder at the club until at least 2019.

The Spain international, 28, signed a four-year contract with Man City from La Liga outfit Valencia, where he spent most of his professional career, in 2010.

He won the Premier League title in his second and fourth seasons at the Etihad Stadium, as well as the 2010/11 FA Cup winner’s medal.

“From the moment I joined the club four years ago it has felt like a second home to me,” Silva told Manchester City website.

“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?”

He becomes the third player to have signed a new contract at the English champions over the summer after Samir Nasri and Aleksandar Kolarov also agreed new terms.

News of the deal comes a day after the club completed the £32m signing of Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala.

City have also added midfielders Fernando and Bruno Zuculini, goalkeeper Willy Caballero, defender Bacary Sagna ahead of the 2014/15 season, while England midfielder Frank Lampard, is to spend six months at the club before joining sister club New York City FC next year.
