(Reuters) - Manchester City midfielder David Silva has signed a one-year contract extension to keep him with the club until 2020, the Premier League leaders said on Thursday.

The Spaniard has been integral to City’s success since joining in 2010 and helped drive them eight points clear atop the league standings this season.

“I am so happy to have committed my future to City,” the 31-year-old told the club’s website. (

“I am incredibly proud of what I have achieved at City in my seven-and-a-half seasons here and with Pep in charge, I feel we are in a great position to win trophies this season and beyond.”

City are on a 19-game winning streak across all competitions and host a stumbling and relegation-threatened West Ham United on Sunday.
