Manchester City playmaker David Silva has signed a new five-year contract, the club have announced.

The inspirational Spain international, who has won two Premier League titles with City, is now committed to the club until the end of the 2018-19 season.

The 28-year-old has been a key figure at the Etihad Stadium since his arrival from Valencia in 2010.

Silva, who has also won the FA Cup and Capital One Cup, told the club’s website: “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.”

Silva is the third City player to have signed a new contract over the summer after Samir Nasri and Aleksandar Kolarov also agreed new terms.

News of the deal also comes a day after the club completed the €40 million signing of Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala.

City’s summer activity has also seen them sign midfielder Fernando, goalkeeper Willy Caballero and defender Bacary Sagna.

England midfielder Frank Lampard, who is to join sister club New York City FC next year, has also agreed a loan move to the Etihad Stadium.
