Milner keen to stay at Man City

England midfielder James Milner has stated his desire to remain a Manchester City player, as long as he is given adequate opportunities in the first team, reports The Daily Star.

Milner has struggled to establish himself as a first choice selection in Manuel Pellegrini’s team, despite Pellegrini said to hold him in high regard.


Milner made 44 appearances in all competitions for City last season, but only 12 of these were Premier League starts. Milner insisted he was happy with the contribution he made though.


“I just want to feel like I'm contributing,” said the 28-year-old Yorkshireman. “I played a fair amount last year - maybe not as many in the league as I would have liked but I felt I contributed to the trophies I won. That's what it's about. I think at the end of the season if you win trophies and you haven't played as much as you wanted it can be frustrating. But that wasn't the case last year and hopefully it won't be this either.”


Milner, who made his Premier League debut for his hometown club Leeds United when he was just 16, joined City from Aston Villa in 2010 in a deal worth more than £28 million. To date he has made 158 appearances in all competitions for the Blues, and also has 48 England caps, including one appearance at the recent World Cup.


He currently has one year left to run on his contract at the Etihad Stadium, and expressed his desire to remain with the club longer, but confirmed that the decision would be based on how much game time he receives.


"Basically I want to be here - as long as I'm playing,” said Milner. “I love it here and hopefully I can be here for a long time to come. But that's determined on how much football I get.”


Milner remains an important presence for City, in particular due his filling of a place in the homegrown quota in a squad that is bursting with foreign talent.
