Etihad Stadium number one commits future to club.
Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart has agreed a new five-year deal contract to stay at the club.
The 24-year-old established himself as the club’s number one last season, ousting Shay Given who has since moved to Aston Villa.
The England international will stay at the club until 2016 but City have refused to divulge the financial details of the deal.
Local media report he has trebled his wages but Hart is just delighted he will be staying at the club during this exciting period.
“I’m absolutely delighted to have signed a new deal and it is a very exciting time to be a City player,” Hart said on the club website.
“I can’t think of myself being anywhere other than City and it really feels like home. I feel very privileged to be staying here for another five years.”
City, defeated 3-2 by Manchester United in Sunday’s Community Shield at Wembley, kick off their Premier League campaign next Monday at home to promoted Swansea City.
They are seeking a first league title since 1968 and will embark on their first ever Champions League campaign following the third place finish last season.
