The 31-year-old playmaker has been at City since he signed in 2010 from Valencia for £24m.

He has established himself as one of the finest midfield playmakers in the Premier League and played a major part in Man City winning two Premier League titles. He also has two League Cups and a FA Cup winners medal to his collection.

The new deal will keep him at the club until 2020, ending speculation over his future at the club.

Silva announced on the official Man City website: “I am incredibly proud of what I have achieved at City in my seven and a half season here and with Pepe in charge, I feel we are in a great position to win trophies this season and beyond.”

“The style of football we are playing is a pleasure to be part of and I look forward to winning more titles in the years to come.”

The Spanish international has made a total of 324 appearances in his seven and half years at the club, with a total of 52 goals to his name, including 72 assists.

City have been unstoppable this season and Silva has contributed 8 assists so far, with his record of 14 assists in a season in his sight.

Pepe Guardiola’s men beat a stubborn Southampton team last night with a last minute strike from winger Raheem Sterling.

The club have equaled Tottenham Hotspurs long standing record of 12 wins in a row in a Premier League season. The way they are currently playing that record seems to be extended further.

The Sky Blues will play struggling West Ham at the Etihad this weekend in the 4pm kick-off on Sunday. We expect nothing but a City win.
