Man City set for more Silva service

By AFP, London

David Silva has signed a new five-year contract with Manchester City, the English Premier League champions announced Tuesday.
Spain playmaker Silva, who has won two Premier League titles with City, is now set to stay with the north-west side until the end of the 2018/19 season.
Silva, 28, has been a central figure at Eastlands since joining the club from Spanish side Valencia in 2010.
"From the moment I joined the club four years ago it has felt like a second home to me," Silva, who has also won the FA Cup and League Cup with City, told the club's website on Tuesday.
"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."
