Weaver seeks City stay

07 Nov 2006 - 11:12:34

Manchester City goalkeeper Nicky Weaver is desperate to earn a new contract to extend his stay at the club beyond the end of the current campaign.

The 27-year-old, who has suffered a number of serious injuries in the past, is enjoying a run of games in the Citizens first team, with summer signing Andreas Isaksson currently sidelined.

Weaver told the club's official magazine: "I would love to stay here beyond this season.

"I have been in Manchester all my adult life and will have been here ten years come April.

"I don't know anything different. I have seen the club in good times and bad. It has been incredibly good to me and of course I want to extend that relationship.

"The players who leave here and go to a bigger and better club are few and far between. Normally, when they leave they go downhill.

"I don't want to leave. I want to stay here and fight for my place.

"I have to convince everyone that I can stay fit and focused and the best way I can do that is to play in the Premiership and keep clean sheets.

"If I do that then, hopefully, the manager will offer me a new deal."
