Weaver chases new deal.

Manchester City's Nicky Weaver has spoken about his desire to win a new deal at the club, following what appears to be a successful fight to beat the knee injury which has kept him sidelined for almost four years.

The Sheffield-born stopper has been at the Eastlands club for almost a decade - a stay which makes him City's longest serving player - and he has no intention of ending his love affair with the club in the near future.

Speaking to Manchester City magazine, Weaver said: 'I would love to stay here beyond this season.

'I have been in Manchester all my adult life and will have been here 10 years come April.

'I don't know much 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.

Weaver has displayed remarkable speed in returning to form, and is one of the Premiership's most consistent custodians this season, appearing in all but one of City's 11 games so far, conceding just 14 goals in the process - and keeping clean sheets in all five of the Blues' home matches.

His form has meant that an injury to £2m summer signing Andreas Isaksson has not been a problem for Stuart Pearce - and it is the thoughts of the City manager that Weaver is most set on influencing.

He said: '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.'
