Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva has been rewarded for recent impressive performances with a new deal which keeps him at the Etihad until 2025.

The 24-year-old, who joined the Citizens from Monaco in 2017, scored in the 7-0 Champions League win over Schalke on Tuesday, taking his tally for the season to 10 goals in all competitions.

The Portugal international is 9/1 with Sky Bet to win the 2018/19 PFA Young Player of the Year award, with team-mate Raheem Sterling the current odds-on favourite.

Silva, who has made 93 appearances for City, said on the club's official website: "It's an honour to extend my deal with Manchester City.

"This club offers everything a player needs to fulfil their ambitions and there's nowhere else I want to be.

"As soon as I heard City wanted me to stay longer, my mind was made up. I love the club, the manager (Pep Guardiola), the players and the fans.

"The style of football we play here excites me, and I am determined to win more trophies. City gives me the best chance of doing that."

City's director of football Txiki Begiristain said: "Bernardo is an exceptional talent, so offering him a new deal and ensuring he spends the best years of his career with us was a very easy decision.

"Under the guidance of Pep and the backroom staff we have here, we expect to see him develop into one of the world's best players over the coming years."

Odds correct as of 1830 GMT on 13/03/19
