Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola would like Vincent Kompany to extend his contract at the Etihad.

The City skipper, who has made 338 appearances for the club, will see his current deal expire at the end of the season but Guardiola is keen on the Belgian putting pen to paper on a new deal. 

When asked if he wants Kompany to stay at City, Guardiola replied as the Mirror quoted: "I would like it. He is our captain, he has spent 11 years here.

"We saw with the last two games, his problem is that he can only play in one of them [Kompany was in the line-up against Liverpool last week but then sat out the FA Cup win over Rotherham].

"His only problem is his physical injuries."

Kompany has captained the Citizens since 2011 and he is the most successful captain in the club's history, leading his side to three Premier League titles, three League Cups and an FA Cup.
