Richards close to new deal

Micah Richards has admitted that playing on a weekly basis
has influenced his decision to stay at Manchester City.
The defender has
been linked with a move to one of the Premier League's top four clubs for some
time but he is now set to sign a new deal with City.
-Sky Sports.

Whilst there was speculation linking him to Chelsea when he broke onto the scene, I don't believe there has been any substance to any of the stories suggesting a move away, and whilst he still had a couple of years left on his current deal, it is clear that his progress over the past year or so warrants some improved terms.

In some of the interviews I have seen whilst he has been away on England duty it is clear that he loves being at the club and a major factor is not just the regular football he is getting but that he has progressed into the first team along with several other academy players.
