Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is set for a new one-year deal with the club, with all parties ready and willing for him to stay at the Etihad. 

Kompany has been with City since the beggining of their ascent, joining in August 2008 from Hamburg in a deal worth €8.5m, just before Sheikh Mansour's takeover bid was actually confirmed on transfer deadline day of that year.

Since then, he has made 348 appearances for the Citizens, providing 19 goals and 11 assists, and collecting three Premier League titles, three League Cups and one FA Cup. 

According to Goal, the club will reward the Belgian's loyalty with a new one-year deal at the end of this season, when his current contract is set to expire. 

This comes in spite of the 32-year-old's multitude of fitness problems that have plagued him in the latter part of his career. He has made just nine appearances in the Premier League this season, and hasn't played since the pivotal 2-1 victory over Liverpool at the start of January. 

Kompany is currently earning £120,000-a-week, but it is understood that he is willing to accept a pay cut to stay with the Sky Blues next season. A behind the scenes role has also been rumoured to possibly follow this deal, with the club aware of just how important a presence the defender has become.

Despite the willingness of all parties to get through the negotiations swiftly, there is no deal yet in place. 

It also understood that regardless of the captain's contract, City will be looking to reinvest in their rearguard over the summer, with Ajax's highly touted Matthijs de Ligt a key target. However, if a move cannot be completed, 18-year-old Eric Garcia could be promoted from the academy instead.
