Pablo Zabaleta puts Manchester City future on hold

Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta reveals that he will discuss his long-term future with his current club at the end of the 2015-16 campaign.

Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta has denied claims that he will leave the Etihad in January as he enters the latter stages of his contract with the Premier League club.

The right-back has lost his spot in the City team to Bacary Sagna this season after struggling to overcome a succession of injuries.

As it stands, the Argentine will be out of contract in June 2017, but the 31-year-old, who has been linked with Inter Milan, has insisted that he will not be leaving the English club this month.

"At the end of this season I will have one more year left on my contract. Normally the end of this season will be the time to decide what we will do," Zabaleta told the Manchester Evening News.

"As a player I think I still have two or three years left to play at the top level, but in football you never know – things change quickly. I am enjoying myself at this great club, and at the end of this season we will have a conversation with the club.

"It's January, and everything comes from the media about players coming in or going out but I am 100 per cent focused on City at the moment. I want to finish the season here and am not thinking of going anywhere in January."

Zabaleta has won two Premier League titles and one FA Cup during his time in England.
