Martin Demichelis has signed a new one year contract extension at Manchester City that will keep him at the Etihad Stadium until the end of the 2015/16 season, the club confirmed on Thursday morning.

"I want to say that I am really proud and happy to have extended my contract for another year," the 34-year-old Argentine delightedly said of his new deal.

"Manchester City is a club with a lot of ambition. We want to grow every year. When you get to hold a trophy, it’s the best feeling for any player," he continued.

"I want to say that I will fight for this club and for my teammates until the end of my contract. I will fight to try and win titles.

"My wife and son are happy here. We are trying to improve our English and I think that’s a good thing for our future. At this stage I am enjoying playing week to week - you can never say what can happen in the future."

Demichelis joined City from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2013 and despite enduring a tough start to his career in England has since become an important member of Manuel Pellegrini's squad.

Sergio Aguero, David Silva, Vincent Kompany and Joe Hart have all committed their futures to the reigning Premier League champions already this season.
