There has been plenty of speculation over the future of the 27-year-old midfielder due to his failure thus far to agree a new deal at the club he joined from Hamburg in 2009 for a fee reported to be around £18million.

But the Holland international has told Dutch magazine NU Sport he wants to remain at the Etihad Stadium.

"My contract runs for another year, so I'm in a pretty good position," he said.

"I would like to stay. I've been at the club for more than three years and I'm enjoying myself.

"I have won the two biggest trophies in England - the FA Cup and the league title. I've seen the club develop from total chaos with the training facilities into a top club, and that's very satisfying to see."
