Kolo Toure believes Manchester City are on course to fulfil his own personal goals of winning the Premier League and Champions League.
Toure joined the ambitious Eastlands club in their first major wave of player recruitment in July 2008.
The Ivory Coast international arrived from Arsenal and has since seen the club spend over £150million on an array of fresh talent, including £20million on his own brother, Yaya, from Barcelona this summer.
City, who are backed by billions from their Abu Dhabi-based owners, are currently second in the Premier League table and Toure believes they are on the right track to major success.
"Now I am settled in Manchester, I know everyone at the club. I know how it all works and feel very happy and comfortable with the way things are going," he told the club's official website.
"We have to be pleased with what we have done so far. But we know we will get better as the season progresses, as we get to know one another and as the injured players begin to come back.
"I came here to win trophies and play Champions League football and that is what we are all working hard to achieve.
"I have played in one great team and I want to be part of another one. I think I still have five or six years to play at the top level and I want to make the most of them.
"People who know me, know that I am as enthusiastic about the game as I have ever been. I look forward to coming into work every single day and seeing this City side keep improving."
