Manuel Pellegrini confirms Edin Dzeko will renew Manchester City contract

Manuel Pellegrini confirms that Edin Dzeko will sign a new contract at Manchester City.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed that Edin Dzeko is close to signing a new contract at the Etihad Stadium.

The Bosnian international has emerged as a crucial member of the Premier League-winning team since his £27m move from Wolfsburg in 2011.

Widespread reports have claimed that Dzeko, who set up David Silva's goal in yesterday's 2-0 victory over Newcastle United, will sign a new five-year deal.

"I'm very happy for him," Sky Sports News quotes Pellegrini as saying. "That's why he is renewing his contract here. He has a very important duty in our team, but I repeat, Edin finished last season playing the same way as he has started.

"I don't think it's 100% finished, but yes he will renew his contract. He's a very important player for us."

Dzeko will join Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero in signing new deals at the club.
