Manchester City captain Richard Dunne has signed a new four-year deal with the Eastlands club.

The 28-year-old defender was strongly linked with a move away from the club, with Portsmouth declaring an interest.

"My first priority is, was and always has been to stay at City," Dunne told the club website.

"When Mark Hughes got the manager's job I think everyone was pleased. I was thrilled he seemed to make it a priority to sort my contract out."

Hughes added: "I'm delighted with the outcome and Richard is a really important player for us.
