Manchester City midfielder Vladimir Weiss has put pen to paper on a new three-year contract at Eastlands.
The 20-year-old Slovakia winger has made three Carling Cup appearances for Mark Hughes' side this season and is now under contract until summer 2012.
"I have been here for four years now and I came here to realise my first-team ambitions. I am delighted to have signed this contract," he told the club's official website.
"I am excited about what the future holds and delighted that even with the players that City have got now, the club have given me the opportunity to progress and show that not only the big players can make it.
"The new deal shows that young players from the academy can progress."
Hughes added:"Vladi has come on leaps and bounds in the last four months and is fast maturing as a player.
"He has all the attributes that electrify crowds and that can turn matches.
"He has shown he has the temperament for big games and we look forward to his further development."
