New Deal Runs To 2020
Manchester City midfielder David Silva has signed a new contract with the Premier League leaders.
The 31-year-old – who moved to the Etihad in 2010 – has signed a three-year deal with City that will expire in 2020. Silva’s previous deal was due to run out in 2019.
“I am so happy to have committed my future to City,” Silva told City’s website.
“I am incredibly proud of what I have achieved at City in my seven-and-a-half seasons here and with Pep in charge, I feel we are in a great position to win trophies this season and beyond.
“The style of football we are playing is a pleasure to be a part of and I look forward to winning more titles in the years to come.”
City’s Director of Football Txiki Begiristain hailed Silva who is regarded as one of the club’s best-ever signings.
“We are very pleased with this announcement. Not only has David Silva been central to the Club’s success over recent years, he remains one of the team’s key players,” said Begiristain.
“He has shown again this season that he is the best creative midfielder in English football and he will be very important in developing our talented young players in the coming years.”
Silva arrived at City from La Liga side Valencia in 2010. He has gone on to make 324 appearances in all competitions for the Sky Blues scoring 52 goals. He has won five major competitions with City: the Premier League twice, the League Cup twice and the FA Cup once.
