The former Benfica midfielder has struggled for regular action since his arrival, but insists there's no regrets.
"It is a very important step to come to City. This is a great club and I want to keep working to progress further. There is a lot of competition. I give everything I can. I want to help City become better.
"On arrival I liked the facilities, the squad. It's a team that wants to grow," declared Javi Garcia.
