Zabaleta pens new deal
Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta has signed a new four-year contract at the Etihad Stadium, the Barclays Premier League club have announced.
The deal rewards Zabaleta for his outstanding form throughout the 2012-13 season, after which he was named as the club's player of the year.
The 28-year-old Argentina international has made 175 appearances for City since signing from Espanyol in a £6.5million deal in 2008.
Zabaleta said: "I have been here for five years and it feels like home. Signing a contract extension with the club makes me feel very happy.
"I feel great here, I like the Premiership, and I think Manchester City are one of the clubs looking for success in the future. It is a club that is very well organised and when you see that everything works well you want to be here."
