Samir Nasri has promised Manchester City that they will see his “best years” after signing a new five-year deal.

Nasri has scored 22 goals in 129 appearances for City after moving to The Etihad from Arsenal in 2011, including 11 strikes in their title-winning campaign last term.

And the 27-year-old, who moved to the Premier League from Marseille in 2008, is hoping to add to his two Premier League titles and League Cup in the coming seasons.

“I’m really happy to have signed this contract and to have committed my future with City,” said Nasri.

“I’m 27 now and if you listen to some of the best managers in the game, they say that a midfield player’s best years are between 27 and 30 so I hope that I will give my best years to City.

“It took me time to adjust to living in Manchester because when you move here from London, it is a big change, but last year everything was perfect – I enjoyed my football and I love living in Manchester, feel very settled and I think that showed on the pitch.

“That’s why I’ve agreed this new contract – because I feel very much at home. Our supporters have been right behind me and it gives me the confidence to play my best game.

“Now I’m looking forward to the new season and to defending our title again.”
