Dunne close to penning Man City deal

Manchester City skipper Richard Dunne is close to signing a new deal at Eastlands.

Dunne has been in inspirational form for City this term helping them to be one of the surprise packages of the season.

The Republic of Ireland international has 18 months left on his current contract and City are keen to tie him down to a new long-term deal.

City boss Sven Goran Eriksson revealed talks are ongoing and he is hopeful the contract will be sorted soon.

"Contract talks are ongoing with Richard," said Eriksson. "It is not far away before he signs a new contract.

"He is very important for us as a captain and in the steadiness and quality of his performances."
