Kompany extends City stay

Alex Livesey

Hot on the heels of this comes the news that Vincent Kompany is the latest to commit long term to City. Kudos to Txiki Begiristain indeed.

As I've mentioned elsewhere, City are doing an excellent job in tieing up the key and core pieces of their squad: Zabaleta, Toure, Aguero, Nasri, Silva and now Kompany. Next up, Hart and Dzeko?

Here's Kompany on the new deal:

"When I arrived in 2008, I could never have dreamed that we could achieve what we have over the last six years but, for me, this is just the start of the journey.

"This team is stronger now than it's ever been; we have competition for places in every position and a dressing room full of exceptional, motivated people who want to continue making history together.

"Lifting two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the Capital One Cup have been four of the best days of my life but I believe that there are many more of these occasions ahead."
