"I'm very pleased because I’ve been here for two years now and I feel very happy here at the club, in the city and with all the people," he said. "So now I’m delighted to be extending my contract and being here really does feel just like home for me.

"We've won the Premier League title and two other trophies, too, and the team is growing and we are now aiming at the Champions League and so that also is another reason to want to stay here and try and win it."
