Man City tie Hart to new long term deal

Manchester City have tied keeper Joe Hart to a new long term contract with the club, according to Sky Sports.

The 27-year-old is the latest high profile player to commit their future to the Etihad Stadium after Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko, Samir Nasri, Aleksander Kolarov, and David Silva all penned new deals over the course of this season.

The new deal sees the England international extend his stay with City until the end of the 2018-19 season.

Having joined from Shrewsbury Town in 2006 his new contract will see him into double figures with his time at the club.

He has made 276 appearances so far for the club after a succession of loan spells aided his development into a first team breakthrough in 2007.

It was with City that Hart earned his first call up to the national side, where he has remained as England’s number one for four years – making 48 appearances in the process.

The keeper expressed his delight at the new contract following the signing and targeted more success with the club.

He said: “I’m really happy, I’ve been here a long time now and I want to keep that going.

“Wanting to stay here was never going to be an issue for me – I’ve loved every moment since I joined. The club’s growing and I’ve been really lucky to be part of the ride.

“I just want to keep winning with the team and keep developing. A lot of the boys have signed long-term deals, so we’re building as a squad and I think that quite a few of us have been here for a long time now.”

Hart endured a tricky spell at the beginning of last season that saw him make a string of high profile errors – leading to Manuel Pellegrini dropping him for a number of games.

Hart recovered fantastically however and played a key part in securing their second title in three years last term.
