The club released a statement on its official website confirming the deal, which will run until 2019.

That means Silva will be 33-years-old when the deal expires, and if he sees it through it will mark nine years at the club.

The Spanish international joined City from La Liga giants Valencia back in 2010 and has played a major part in the side’s two Premier League titles as well as establishing them as a regular in the Champions League.

“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.

“It was a straightforward decision to extend my stay here and spend my peak years at Manchester City, a club with unbelievable fans who have always supported me.”

Silva has been established as a firm fan favourite at the Etihad, winning three consecutive Player of the Month awards during his first season at the club, as fans took the diminutive playmaker straight to their hearts.
