Nigel De Jong says he has no concerns over his ongoing contract situation with Manchester City, and insists he wants to stay at the Etihad Stadium.

The 26-year-old Dutchman has been the subject of widespread speculation with the combative midfielder's current deal set to expire at the end of the current campaign.

But De Jong is adamant he is happy with life under Roberto Mancini, and revealed how he wants to win trophies with the Citizens.

"There is no concern about my contract," he confirmed. "I have spoken my mind, it is up to the club to decide what they want to do now.

"I have been here for three years and I am happy."

City officials have made positive noises, which indicate they too want De Jong to extend his stay with the Barclays Premier League leaders, in a bid to bring further success to the club.

"I am here to win prizes," he continued. "We won the FA Cup last season, now we are doing well in the Premier League. For me there is no reason to move on."
