David Silva has agreed a new five-year contract with Manchester City.
The Spain midfielder's new deal runs until the summer of 2017, the Barclays Premier League champions announced on their website.
Silva, 26, joined City from Valencia in July 2010 and last season helped the club win the league title for the first time since 1968.
The Spaniard is the latest player to pledge his long-term future to Manchester City, following in the footsteps of England goalkeeper Joe Hart and Belgium and City captain Vincent Kompany.
Speaking about his new deal, Silva said: "I'm very pleased because I've been here for two years now and I feel very happy here at the club, in the city and with all the people.
"I'm delighted to be extending my contract and being here really does feel just like home for me.
"We've won the Premier League title and two other trophies too, and the team is growing and we are now aiming at the Champions League and so that also is another reason to want to stay here and try and win it.
"As I said, I feel very comfortable here and I want to try and win trophies like those."
