Manchester City defender Martin Demichelis says he intends to help the club win more titles after signing a new contract until the end of next season.

The experienced centre-back was out of contract at the end of the current season but has now committed until summer 2016 after emerging as a prominent member of Manuel Pellegrini’s back four.

Demichelis, who played in last year’s World Cup final for Argentina, has played 30 times in all competitions this season and made 19 starts in the league despite competition from Eliaquim Mangala to be Vincent Kompany’s partner.

The 34-year-old helped City win the Premier League and Capital One Cup in his debut season in 2013-14 and while the club look set to miss out this term, he is hoping to bring more silverware going forward.

“I want to say that I am really proud and happy to have extended my contract for another year,” he told the club’s official website.

“Manchester City is a club with a lot of ambition. We want to grow every year. When you get to hold a trophy, it’s the best feeling for any player.

“I want to say that I will fight for this club and for my team-mates until the end of my contract. I will fight to try and win titles.”

Man City are still in the Champions League but must overturn a 3-1 deficit to Barcelona in the second leg at Camp Nou to reach the quarter-finals, while in the Premier League they are five points adrift of leaders Chelsea, who have a game in hand.

The Citizens are 8.00 to lift the Premier League title this season and 57.00 to win the Champions League.
