Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho has committed his future to the club after penning a new two-and-a-half year contract at the Etihad Stadium until 2020.
The Brazilian’s previous contract would have emailed expired at the end of the current season.
On his new contract, Fernandinho, who joined the Citizens from Ukrainian champions Shakhtar Donetsk, told the club’s official website that: “This is a club with a fantastic future and I want to be a part of it for as long as possible.”
“With Pep in charge, I feel sure we can win significant silverware and, importantly, we will try to do it playing attractive, attacking football. It’s a pleasure to be a part of this club and I look forward to seeing what the next few years bring.” he added.
Director of football Txiki Begiristain added: “We’re delighted Ferna has signed his new contract. He is a senior member of the squad and his professionalism and work ethic are second to none.”
“His form has been fantastic this season and we’re happy he’s extended his deal for a further two years.” he concluded.
He is the second City player to pen a new deal this week after Argentine defender Nicolas Otamendi.
