Manchester City midfielder Nigel de Jong has confirmed he wants to sign a new contract to stay at the Premier League champions, ESPN has reported. The Netherlands international’s current deal expires in a year’s time.

De Jong said: “My contract runs for another year. I want to stay. I’ve been at the club for three years and I’m feeling well. I have won…the biggest trophies in England.” Since moving to the Etihad Stadium in January 2009, signed by then-manager Mark Hughes, de Jong has won the FA Cup in 2010 as well as the Premier League title last season.

The 27-year-old has made a total of 135 appearances for the club, scoring only twice, including 36 games and one goal, in a 2-2 League Cup draw with Liverpool, last season. De Jong has however gone from a regular starter under Roberto Mancini to more of a squad player but the former Ajax and Hamburg man says he accepts squad rotation as part of the game.

De Jong was part of the Netherlands squad that bombed at Euro 2012, losing all three of their group games, against Germany, Portugal and Denmark, scoring only twice and conceding five goals in the process.
