Vieira signs new City deal
Veteran midfielder Patrick Vieira has agreed a one-year contract extension at Manchester City.
Vieira signed on a six-month deal from Inter Milan in January and, having made 14 appearances, coach Roberto Mancini feels the 33-year-old's experience will prove valuable next season.
A statement on the official Manchester City website read: "The club is delighted to confirm that Patrick Vieira will be staying with City after taking up the option of a one-year extension to his contract."
City have cleared out a number of older players this week, with Martin Petrov, Sylvinho and Benjani all released after failing to earn new deals.
