Ilkay Gundogan has hinted that he is close to agreeing a new contract with Manchester City.

The Germany midfielder, who joined the Premier League champions from Borussia Dortmund in 2016, has just entered the final year of his current deal.

There has been speculation about the 28-year-old's future but now it seems he could be about to extend his stay at the Etihad Stadium.

"If you stay patient for another couple of weeks you will know. We will see," said Gundogan when asked about the situation after the Community Shield on Sunday.

"Every situation is different and individual. Everyone has to take a decision for himself. These kind of decisions sometimes take a little bit of time.

"During last season I asked people to be patient because it's a decision you make for the next few years. That's why I was calm and relaxed and still am. It's a comfortable situation for me at the moment."

Gundogan featured as a second-half substitute as City beat Liverpool 5-4 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in the season-opener at Wembley at the weekend.
