Nigel de Jong has declared himself happy at Manchester City and believes he is in a "good position" with regards to his contract, which is moving into its final season.

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. He said: "My contract runs for another year, so I'm in a pretty good position. I would like to stay. I've been at the club for more than three years and I'm enjoying myself."
