Keeper Hart signs new five-year deal at Man City

Manchester: Manchester City`s England goalkeeper Joe Hart has signed a new five-year contract, the Premier League club said.

The 24-year-old established himself as the club`s number one last season, ousting Shay Given who has since moved to Aston Villa.

City did not provide financial details of the deal which keeps Hart at the world`s richest club until 2016 but local media have reported he will treble his wages.

"I`m absolutely delighted to have signed a new deal and it is a very exciting time to be a City player," Hart said on the club website.

"I can`t think of myself being anywhere other than City and it really feels like home. I feel very privileged to be staying here for another five years."

City, who were defeated 3-2 by Manchester United in Sunday`s Community Shield at Wembley, kick off their Premier League campaign next Monday at home to promoted Swansea City and are seeking a first league title since 1968.
