Vincent Kompany has signed a new six-year contract with the Premier League champions.
The City captain, who led the club to their first top-flight league title since 1968, has committed his long term future to Manchester City in a deal that could keep him at the club until 2018.
The Belgian defender has established himself as a key member of Roberto Mancini's team since joining from Hamburg in 2008.
Kompany says his ambition to win more silverware is the reason he is staying with the club: "For me if you are good somewhere then there is no reason to look elsewhere.
"Man City as a project is not just a project of the owners or the people employed by the club; it is also my project.
"I have been here since the beginning and I have seen everything at the club change inside and out.
"I have the feeling that I have contributed to it too. It is good to know that I can be at City for another six years. It is a compliment that the club feels so highly of me.
"We have laid the foundations and now we want to win more. If we do that then we can be one of the most successful clubs for a long time to come and that is the aim."
"My family is happy and there are so many more trophies to win at this club that is why it makes it so special."
