Six more years at Manchester City for Vincent Kompany

Belgium's Vincent Kompany has put his signature on the dotted line and will stay with English champions Manchester City for a further six years.

The 26-year-old Belgium international has been with Manchester City for four years now and as captain led his squad to victory in the Premiership last season landing the league title for City for the first time in living memory.

The club is now rewarding him with a long contract. This is the first time that Manchester City offers a player a six year contract.

Kompany told VRT News: "When you feel comfy somewhere there's no need to look out for something different."

"I'm pleased I'll be able to play here for another six years. The fans are fantastic and my family is at home here."

"I see it as a compliment that the club has so much confidence in me. I hope to play an even more important role in future. There is so much silverware still out there."
