Spanish David Silva will see out the 2019/20 Premier League season with Manchester City after all. Silva, whose contract was set to expire at the end of June, reportedly agreed to a short-term contract extension with City.

Premier League will most likely resume its season at some point in June with games expected to take place well into July and maybe even August. This timeline would have Silva leave Man City before the club finishes its game under his current contract. However, with this new deal, the 34-year-old should be able to play the remainder of the schedule.

According to ESPN, the two sides haven’t signed an official document to confirm the agreement. Still, this is considered a formality and will be taken care of once the Premier League confirms its return.

David Silva confirmed earlier this year that he would be leaving Manchester City this summer. He is expected to re-join his former club Valencia, while MLS also stands as a viable destination according to reports.

Silva joined Manchester City in 2010 and has since played 423 games in all competitions. He won 15 trophies with the club, including four Premier League titles.
