David Silva has agreed terms on a five-year contract with Manchester City. The 28-year-old’s extension to his current deal will run to the summer of 2019 and makes Silva the third player to agree an improved offer after Samir Nasri and Aleksander Kolarov.

“From the moment I joined the club four years ago it has felt like a second home to me,” the Spain midfielder said. “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?”

Silva joined City from Valencia in 2010 and proved an instant hit, winning three consecutive player of the month awards between October and December that year before helping the club end their 35-year trophy drought with the FA Cup final win over Stoke City.
