Pablo Zabaleta has committed his long-term future to Manchester City by signing a new four-year contract which will keep him at the Etihad Stadium until 2017.

The defender who was voted Etihad Player of the Year for 2012/13 joined City in 2008 from Espanyol and has gone on to make 175 appearances for the club.

"I have been here for five years and it feels like home. Signing a contract extension with the club makes me feel very happy" Zabaleta said.
