David Silva signs new Man City deal
David Silva has signed a new five-year contract with Manchester City, committing his future to the Premier League champions until 2019.
Silva, 28, who joined from Valencia in 2010, said he was confident City would become one of the finest teams on the planet, saying he has no reason to leave the Etihad Stadium.
The Spain international has helped City win two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the Capital One Cup in his four years in Manchester.
And he is confident he will secure plenty more silverware with City, telling their official 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."
Silva had three years remaining on his previous contract, which was signed in 2012, but City have moved to tie down the World Cup winner on a longer deal.
He has agreed to stay in Manchester until he is 33, and believes City will see the best of him.
